Choroidal thickness in patients with Graves’ orbitopathy

Graves orbitapatili hastalarda koroidin daha kalın olduğu tespit edildi.

Ozkan et al., from Kocaeli University Medical School, Department of Ophthalmlology, found that the choroid was thicker in patients with Graves’ orbitopathy. Thirty-one patients with mild Graves’ orbitopathy were included in the study and choroidal thicknesses were evaluated by EDI-OCT. In addition to choroidal thickness, visual field and VEP P100 latency were also evaluated. Graves’ orbitopathy patients had a thicker choroid and choroidal thickness was significantly correlated with clinical activity score,
