Thyroid associated ophthalmopathy (TAO) is a common autoimmune disorder. The pathogenesis of TAO is unclear, and studies found that T cell, B cell and monocytes, macrophages and mast cells are located in the orbital tissue of TAO. Dysthyroid optic neuropathy (DON) is the most serious complication of TAO, which can cause blurred vision, color vision and vision function damage, and affects the quality of life. Investigation of the therapeutic effect of orbital decompression may provide some clues to make the policy at treatment of DON. We explore the therapeutic effect of orbital decompression in patients with DON in both eyes.

This is a pilot study to determine the safety and efficacy of orbital injections of LIPO-102.
Accuracy of posttraumatic orbital reconstruction of the meidal orbital wall and/or floor is better with preoperatively preformed orbital implants than with non-preformed orbital implants.
The described technique of DLW-PRS decompression for TRO using SONOPET(R) appears to be safe and effective, reducing the complications associated with decompressing the orbital floor and m...
To investigate the molecular pathways that drive thyroid stimulating hormone receptor (TSHR)-induced cellular proliferation in orbital fibroblasts (OFs) from thyroid eye disease (TED) patients.
To report a multicenter large case series of orbital decompression for non-thyroid eye disease proptosis.
Medical artificial intelligence (AI) promotes technological revolution and industrial transformation in the medical field, and the medical level of orbital disease will also be improved with the in-de...
Thyroid eye disease (TED) can lead to scar formation and tissue remodeling in the orbital space. In severe cases, the scarring process leads to sight-threatening pathophysiology. There is no known eff...
Graves' disease (GD) is an autoimmune thyroid disorder characterized by hyperthyroidism. The incidence of thyroid cancer in patients with GD varies from 0.15% to 15%. There is conflicting evidence on ...
Autoantibodies that bind to the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) receptor (RECEPTORS, THYROTROPIN) on thyroid epithelial cells. The autoantibodies mimic TSH causing an unregulated production of thyroid hormones characteristic of GRAVES DISEASE.
Cell surface proteins that bind pituitary THYROTROPIN (also named thyroid stimulating hormone or TSH) and trigger intracellular changes of the target cells. TSH receptors are present in the nervous system and on target cells in the thyroid gland. Autoantibodies to TSH receptors are implicated in thyroid diseases such as GRAVES DISEASE and Hashimoto disease (THYROIDITIS, AUTOIMMUNE).
A nonspecific tumor-like inflammatory lesion in the ORBIT of the eye. It is usually composed of mature LYMPHOCYTES; PLASMA CELLS; MACROPHAGES; LEUKOCYTES with varying degrees of FIBROSIS. Orbital pseudotumors are often associated with inflammation of the extraocular muscles (ORBITAL MYOSITIS) or inflammation of the lacrimal glands (DACRYOADENITIS).
Inflammatory disease of the THYROID GLAND due to autoimmune responses leading to lymphocytic infiltration of the gland. It is characterized by the presence of circulating thyroid antigen-specific T-CELLS and thyroid AUTOANTIBODIES. The clinical signs can range from HYPOTHYROIDISM to THYROTOXICOSIS depending on the type of autoimmune thyroiditis.
An aggressive THYROID GLAND malignancy which generally occurs in IODINE-deficient areas in people with previous thyroid pathology such as GOITER. It is associated with CELL DEDIFFERENTIATION of THYROID CARCINOMA (e.g., FOLLICULAR THYROID CARCINOMA; PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER). Typical initial presentation is a rapidly growing neck mass which upon metastasis is associated with DYSPHAGIA; NECK PAIN; bone pain; DYSPNEA; and NEUROLOGIC DEFICITS.
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, just above thecollarbone and is an endocrine gland that make hormones. These Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in the body, including how fast the body burns calories and how fast th...
Autoimmune disorders are conditions that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. There are more than 80 different types of autoimmune disorders. Normally the immune system's white blood cells help protect ...
