Adie syndrome

a syndrome consisting of a pathological pupil reaction (tonic pupil) with a myotonic condition on accommodation; the pupil on the affected side contracts (for near vision) and dilates more slowly than the pupil on the opposite side. In direct or indirect light, the affected pupil either does not react at all or reacts in an abnormal fashion. Certain tendon reflexes are absent or diminished, usually the patellar reflexes, but there are no motor or sensory disturbances or other demonstrable changes indicating disease of the nervous system. Called also Holmes-Adie s.
