Treatment of Infantile Cortical Hyperostosis
The condition is self-limiting and regresses on its own within a period of few weeks to months and often goes unnoticed if present in a particularly benign form. Periods of remissions and exacerbations can occur.
Steroids may be of some benefit in the symptomatic management of the disease. Sometimes deformities in the affected bone persist into adulthood and if they are present on the face, then corrective surgery is required. This is again for cosmetic purposes rather than for palliative purpose.
