A 17-year-old girl presented with euthyroid Graves' disease. Diplopia and extensive limitation of ocular motility bilaterally were the most remarkable features of this case. Even though the patient also had juvenile diabetes mellitus, treatment with systemic steroids was accomplished safely with complete recovery of ocular motility and the disappearance of diplopia in all fields of gaze.
