Abstract: Thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy usually occurs in a close temporal relationship with hyperthyroidism. It is rare in patients with normal thyroid function (euthyroid ophthalmopathy) and in patients with hypothyroid forms of thyroid autoimmune disease (hypothyroid ophthalmopathy) 1. A 43-year-old male, known case of hypertension presented with involuntary jerky movements and protrusion of eyes since 2 months with normal thyroid functions, diagnosed to have euthyroid opthalmopathy & responded very well to steroids. It is currently believed that euthyroid ophthalmopathy reflects the underlying autoimmune process and it is not a consequence of alternations in thyroid function.
