Abstract. Purpose:To report the effect of sub-Tenon's triamcinolone acetonide injection for hypertrophic inferior rectus muscle in thyroid ophthalmopathy. Cases and Method:This study was made on 78 eyes of 78 cases who received sub-Tenon's triamcinolone acetonide injection for hypertrophic inferior rectus muscle in thyroid ophthalmopathy. The cases were aged from 29 to 81 years, average 51 years. Magnetic resonance imaging(MRI)was used to quantitate the cross-sectional area of inferior rectus muscle and T2-signal intensity ratio. Cases were evaluated regarding thyroid-stimulating antibody, diplopia and complications. They were followed up for 6 months. Results:The treatment was followed by decrease in the cross-sectional area of inferior rectus muscle and T2-signal intensity ratio(p<0.01). Cases who failed to respond to treatment, showed higher levels of thyroid-stimulating antibody. Cases who needed additional treatment showed higher T2-signal intensity ratio(p<0.01). Conclusion:Sub-Tenon's triamcinolone acetonide injection was effective for hypertrophic inferior rectus muscle in thyroid ophthalmopathy.
