Adie syndrome was named after the British physician and neurologist William John Adie (b. 1886 - d. 1935).
It consists of a classic triad of:
- absent deep tendon reflexes, e.g. ankle jerk
- an Adie pupil: tonically dilated and responds poorly or not at all to light
It is thought to result from damage to the ciliary ganglion by viral or bacterial infection.
