The purpose of this study was to elucidate the incidence of orbital changes in computed tomography, and the relationships of orbital changes with eye-muscle antibody (EMAb), thyrotrophin-binding inhibitor immunoglobulin (TBII), antithyroglobulin antibody (TgAb) and anti-thyroid microsomal antibody (MsAb), in 55 consecutive patients with hyperthyroid Graves' disease. EMAb was demonstrated by an immunoperoxidase technique. The results showed that the prevalence of orbital fat increase… CONTINUE READING
