Summary
Thyroid eye disease (TED) is an autoimmune inflammatory disorder involving the soft tissues of the orbit. TED is also called thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy (TAO) and Graves orbitopathy or ophthalmopathy (GO). Its immunologic pathogenesis is still a source of investigation; however, there are several characteristic effects on the orbital structures, including eyelid retraction, eyelid lag, lagopthalmos, proptosis, restrictive extraocular myopathy, and optic neuropathy. It is mediated by autoantibodies that target TSH-R and other antigens expressed on pluripotential orbital fibroblasts. It is the most common cause of eyelid retraction and proptosis in adults
