Can seven days prednisolone dosage of 40 mg effect mantoux test?
Brief Answer: will not cause negative test result Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for your query. Seven days prednisolone @ a dose of 40 mg/day will never cause immunosupression to make your positive mantoux test to a negative one. There is a term called reversion of mantoux test which can be responsible here though the chance of which is rare. Your first positive report may be a false positive one. If you want to know more your can ask me. Regards Dr Arnab Maji MBBS, MD Pulmonologist
