  Thyroid eye disease (TED) is seen most commonly with Graves’ disease Symptoms include diplopia, eyelid erythema and retraction, and soreness and grittiness of eyes with increased watering. Severe cases (3 - 5%) may present with pain, corneal ulceration, optic nerve compression and partial/total loss of vision.

  Corticosteroids are the primary treatment for active phase TED, although there is risk of adverse effects such as weight gain, hypertension and immunosuppression with long-term, high-dose use.

  We will discuss a patient history with TED before, during and after treatment with tocilizumab and steroids Tocilizumab is current treatment options for moderate-to-severe.

  Given the role in the pathogenesis of TED of interleukin (IL)-6 expression in adipocytes, fibroblasts and macrophages, the proposed theory is that inhibition of IL-6 by tocilizumab may be an effective treatment in TED by directly reducing the inflammatory response.
