|Are exophthalmos or Grave's disease HIV related?
Feb 19, 2002
Do people with HIV develop exophthalmos or Grave's disease? What about other endocrine disorders? Thanks.
Response from Dr. Feinberg
The only endocrine problem that occurs fairly commonly in people with HIV is a shortage of appropriate sex hormones ("hypogonadism"). Graves disease is a thyroid problem and is unrelated to HIV.
