Abstract:
Thyroid-associated Ophthalmopathy (TAO) is an ocular condition that frequently manifests with thyroid disfunction, and is the most common extrathyroidal manifestation of Graves’ disease. It involves an organ specific autoimmune reaction that can affect the thyroid gland, orbital and periorbital tissue. The condition primarily affects women and it is the commonest cause of unilateral and bilateral axial proptosis in young and middle -aged adults. The clinical presentation may vary from mild disease to severe irreversible sight threatening complications. Here we report a case of 35-years old female who presented to our OPD with complaints of protrusion of both eye, diminution of vision in both eye, pain, redness and unable to move eye in the last 2 months. She was known case of hyperthyroidism in the last one year and on regular antihyperthyroid medication.
