Due to the anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects, GCs are frequently prescribed for the treatment of a variety of diseases, e.g., inflammatory rheumatic diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), inflammatory bowel diseases, and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases.The clinical relevance of GIOP is demonstrated by the associated augmented vertebral and non-vertebral fracture incidence, which causes significant morbidity and negatively influences quality of life, especially in patients receiving long-term GC therapy. Moreover, fractures are often the presenting manifestation of GIOP, which illustrates that GIOP is still underdiagnosed and undertreated. Therefore, increasing awareness among physicians is needed to prevent morbidity and disability in GC-treated patients.
