A 57-year-old man attended our clinic complaining of orbital pain, anxiety, and a tremor. On examination, he had oedema and retraction of his eyelids and an obvious tremor. 6 months earlier, he had been diagnosed with autoimmune hypothyroidism after he began to gain weight and complained of feeling tired: his thyroidstimulating hormone (TSH) concentration was raised at 83 mIU/L (normal range 0.3–4.6), free thyroxine (T4) concentration was 5.9 pmol/L (normal range 10–23), and the antithyroid peroxidase antibody concentration was markedly elevated at 1488 IU/mL (normal level <101) .
