Activity and severity of thyroid eye disease, adapted from Rundle 1957 and Prummel and Wiersinga 2002. The lower panel shows the possible outcome of treatment (indicated by the single arrow) which has 50% efficacy, given at 50% of maximal disease severity, and 95% disease activity. Treatment given later, when the disease is less active, is likely to have much less effect on disease severity
