Abstract

Exophthalmos is typically associated with Graves- ophthalmopathy. Although originally described by Harvey Cushing, exophthalmos is an underappreciated sign of Cushing-s syndrome. We present a case of a 38-year-old female who presented with severe bilateral proptosis and was subsequently diagnosed with Cushings disease. We discuss the possible mechanisms causing exophthalmos in patients with either endogenous or exogenous hypercortisolemia.
