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.

Adie's tonic pupil, also known as Holmes-Adie syndrome, results from disruption of the post-ganglionic supply to the sphincter pupillae.
This can be caused by viral infection, as in the case of Adie's tonic pupil, damage to the pre-tectal area (Parinaud's syndrome), or damage in the rostral midbrain (Argyll-Robertson pupil).
In this instance, the differential diagnosis is between iris sphincter damage, pharmacologic blockade, Adie's tonic pupil, third cranial nerve palsy, and intermittent unilateral pupillary mydriasis (parasympathetic form).
