Severe complications of pulse methylprednisolone, mainly cardiovascular, are strongly related to underlying comorbidities. Glucose monitoring is necessary only in diabetic patients. Potassium movements suggest a risk of hypokalicystia, of potential danger in patients with cardiac disease. A close clinical, blood pressure and electrocardiographic monitoring is needed during the whole treatment.
