    Abstract

    The treatment of a patient with euthyroid Graves' ophthalmopathy is described. A poor response was obtained from large doses of prednisone whereas a combination of orbital irradiation and low dose cyclophosphamide induced a dramatic resolution. As there is no fully satisfactory treatment for this condition, this combined therapy deserves further investigation.
