Abstract: The authors report the results of a prospective study, conducted between March 1990 and March 1991, on 85 patients suffering from Graves' disease, who were systematically examined to evaluate the prevalence of ophthalmopathy in Graves' disease. They were graded according to the Nospecs classification : 32 patients had no opthalmopathy ; 21 had only eyelid retraction (grade I in the Nospecs) ; 32 had a real ophthalmopathy (Grade II) or more in the Nospecs : 27 patients had signs of inflammation (grade II), that were often minor, 14 patients a moderate or intermediate exophtalmos (grade III), 4 patients had corneal injuries (grade V). The authors discuss the problems caused by this classification.
