EUropean Group On Graves' Orbitopathy

Graves’ Orbitopathy

Graves’ Orbitopathy (GO), also known as thyroid eye disease, or dystiroid orbitopathy is a disease of the orbit affecting the eyes, and surrounding tissues. It is a possible cause of visual deterioration and double vision and is closely correlated to thyroid dysfunctions, particularly with Basedow or Graves disease.

The Society

EUGOGO is a multidisciplinary Scientific Society of endocrinologists, ophthalmologists, basic scientists and neuro-radiologists who have a special clinical and research interest in Graves’ Orbitopathy.

Understanding GO

EUGOGO aims to contribute towards understanding the pathogenesis of Graves’ Orbitopathy and improve the management of patients, through collaborative scientific basic and clinical research.


EUGOGO also contributes towards education, teaching and training of health professionals involved in the care of patients with Graves’ Orbitopathy.

The European Group on Graves’ Orbitopathy (EUGOGO) is a multidisciplinary Scientific Society of clinicians who have a special clinical and research interest in Graves' orbitopathy (GO).


All these people have one vision:

To improve the management and quality of life of patients with Graves’ orbitopathy through standardised assessment, education and collaborative research. Many centres in Europe and elsewhere have previously conducted clinical studies on Graves’ orbitopathy. However, difficulties in recruiting large numbers of patients and variations in clinical assessment have frustrated attempts to determine the best treatment available for GO. To overcome these limitations, nine European Centres joined forces in 1999 and founded EUGOGO.

These include: Endocrinologists - Ophthalmologists - Epidemiologists - Radiologists Psychologists - Research - Scientists.
