Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


43 clinically euthyroid patients with unilateral exophthalmos were examined using clinical methods, echography, and computerized tomography. The functioning of the hypothalamic-hypophyseal-thyroid axis was investigated by measurements of TSH (before and after stimulation with TRH), thyroid hormones and antithyroglobulin antibodies. After a review of the literature, the results are discussed.
