Definition

Adie Syndrome is a benign syndrome with synonyms:Adie"s Pupil; Adie"s Syndrome; Adie"s Tonic Pupil; Holmes-Adie Syndrome; Papillotonic Psuedotabes; Tonic Pupil Syndrome.

Adie Syndrome is a rare neurological disorder affecting the pupil of the eye; In most patients the pupil is dilated (larger than normal) and slow to react to light on nearby objects; In some patients, however, the pupil may be constricted (smaller than normal) rather than dilated; Absent or poor reflexes are also associated with this disorder; Adie Syndrome is neither progressive nor life threatening, nor is it disabling [NORD 2005]
