Adie syndrome

(redirected from Adie's tonic pupil)

A·die syn·drome

(a'dē), [MIM*103100]
an idiopathic postganglionic denervation of the parasympathetically innervated intraocular muscles, usually complicated by signs of aberrant regeneration of these nerves: a weak light reaction with segmental palsy of iris sphincter, a strong, slow near response. Deep tendon reflexes are often asymmetrically reduced.
