      <ArticleTitle>Corneal Abrasion After Radical Thyroidectomy: A Case Report</ArticleTitle>
      <Abstract>Corneal abrasion during radical thyroidectomy is a rare complication and is infrequently addressed in the literature. Here, we present the case of a young female patient who underwent radical thyroidectomy with general anesthesia. During the operation, the eyes were being naturally closed without protection measures, and corneal abrasion of the left eye occurred after the operation. The lesion had completely resolved with no sequelae after treatment. Therefore, preventive measures and attentive care may help reduce the incidence of corneal abrasion in patients undergoing radical thyroidectomy.</Abstract>
