Orbital computed tomographic characteristics of globe subluxation in thyroid orbitopathy.


OBJECTIVE Axial globe subluxation may complicate thyroid orbitopathy. This acute event is defined by anterior displacement of the globe equator beyond the orbital rim, lid retraction behind the equator, and tethering of the optic nerve. The authors explored the factors leading to spontaneous globe subluxation in patients with thyroid orbitopathy. DESIGN A… (More)
