The present study reveals our experience in the medical management of 30 cases of progressive/malignant exophthalmos, employing costicosteroid, b-blocker, diuretic and a preparation containing proteolytic enzymes. There was encouraging improvement in terms of symptoms, proptosis and optic nerve compression, while reduction of ophthalmoplegia was not so satisfactory. However, none of the patients needed decompression surgery.
