Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Twelve patients with Graves' ophthalmopathy (grade 1-6, ATA classification) were treated with Cyclosporin-A, systemically in combination with methylprednisolone. We observed slight or moderate favourable effect in 9 cases. Our data suggest that the benefit was due to the methylprednisolone, the effectivity of which was enhanced by the cyclosporin even in the glucocorticoid-resistant cases.
