Background: Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder (NMOSD) is a rare disease marked by CNS demyelination with a predilection for the optic nerve and spinal cord often resulting in severe vision loss. We aimed to characterize uveitis occurring in the setting of NMOSD.Methods: Retrospective chart reviewResults: Of 572 NMOSD patients, 1% were found to have uveitis with a relative risk of 6.2 (95% confidence interval 3-14, p < .001) compared to the general population. The mean age of uveitis onset w...

Introduction: Thyroid-associated orbitopathy (TAO) is one of the most common autoimmune inflammatory disorders of the orbit. The presence of anti-thyroid antibodies is believed to play a role in the pathogenesis and clinical status of the TAO patients. Herein, we review the usefulness of TPOAb as a biomarker for TAO.Methods: A systematic search in MEDLINE library was conducted. Results: Twenty studies were included. TPO is expressed in orbital tissues, and the polymorphism rs11675434 SNP has pro...
