Thyroid associated ophthalmopathy is a kind of organ specific autoimmune disease, which is mainly caused by the dysfunction of T lymphocytes and the imbalance of immune function in vivo. In the sera of patients with detectable thyroid antibody, antibody and antibody of the extraocular muscle cell membrane has a certain cross, lead to extraocular muscle inflammatory edema, causing exophthalmos, orbital soft tissue edema and other ocular manifestations. When there are psychological factors, such as trauma, fatigue, anger and other incentives, the in vivo immune destruction, especially immune suppressor T lymphocytes and regulation of cellular immune function defects, caused by out of control, functional variation, T helper lymphocytes secrete cytokines, leading to thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin antibodies produced sick. Therefore, bad temper, good jealousy, work pressure, emotional instability were more likely to have thyroid associated ophthalmopathy.
