Thyroid eye disease (TED) refers to the ocular symptoms and signs caused by an autoimmune pathology affecting the thyroid gland and the orbit. It is most commonly seen in patients with Graves' disease and rarely with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT). Upper eyelid retraction is the most consistent eyelid sign. Blepharoptosis in TED has been reported sparsely and is mostly associated with myasthenia gravis. Here, we report a case of blepharoptosis as a presenting sign of HT in a young girl.
