A neurological disorder affecting both the pupil and deep tendon reflexes. One eye presents with a larger-than-normal pupil (mydriasis), and with slow constriction in bright light. Deep tendon reflexes suffer loss too. It is thought that the syndrome arises from neurotrophic viral infections responsible for the inflammation and damage to neurons in the ciliary ganglion. It may begin in one eye then progressively affect the other.
