ABSTRACT
This article presents information on corticosteroid hormones. These are steroid hormones secreted by the cortex of the adrenal glands, or are synthetic substances that resemble the natural forms. There are two main types, glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids. The latter assist in maintaining the salt-and-water balance of the body.
