Chron's Disease Treatment?

My 4 year old nephew has been diagnosed with chron’s disease, and currently his entire large intestine is infected, as a result the doctor is prescribing him 5 mg of pertizone (sp?) 4 times a day, which is a steroid…now for anyone with that is familiar with this drug or disease what kind of effects will this have on a 4 year old boy in the future?
