Title Ocular Manifestations of Systemic Disorders
Subject Thyroid Disease, thyroid eye disease, myopathy, proptosis, periorbital edema, lid retraction
Description Thyroid eye disease is the most common cause of unilateral or bilateral proptosis in the adult patient.

Patients with markedly asymmetric or strictly unilateral proptosis should probably undergo an imaging of the orbit to exclude orbital tumor. Pair with 91_50.
