Rev Med Suisse
Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal ArticlePublication Status: ppublish
Mild to moderate forms of orbitopathy are common in auto-immune thyroid diseases, whereas severe forms are rare. Euthyroidism restoration, no smoking, and ocular local lubricants are necessary for all the patients. In case of mild orbitopathy, treatment by selenium is now indicated. Active forms of thyroid orbitopathy are better treated by IV steroids. Surgery is indicated in optic neuropathy resistant to steroids and in sequellar forms of the disease.
