Résumé
javax.xml.bind.JAXBElement@1454aedc
Graves' disease is an autoimmune disorder leading to hyperthyroidism. It is often associated with ophthalmic manifestations. Graves' disease is reported to be rare in the paediatric population. javax.xml.bind.JAXBElement@20201ad0 We performed a retrospective analysis on all patients diagnosed with ophthalmopathy related to Graves' disease at a paediatric age (less than 18 years old) in our institution between 2004 and 2015. javax.xml.bind.JAXBElement@33565fcc Eight patients were identified: 6 females and 2 males. The median age at diagnosis was 11.5 years (range 3-16). Ophthalmic signs were: proptosis (6/8), superficial punctate keratitis (5/8), eyelid retraction (4/8), lagophthalmos (2/8), and oculomotor dysfunction (2/8). No patients showed signs of complication such as ocular hypertension or compressive optic neuropathy. Orbital decompression was performed in one patient in a non-emergency setting. javax.xml.bind.JAXBElement@4bf1b257 Ophthalmic involvement in Graves' disease is rarely encountered in paediatric patients. Ophthalmologists should be aware of this entity to ensure that patients with thyroid dysfunction are identified at an early point in time.
