Midbrain Pupils

Midbrain Pupils
Top: Both pupils of this 10-year-old boy are moderately dilated. Neither responded to direct light stimulation. Bottom: During fixation on a near target, both pupils briskly constrict to 2.5 mm. Light-near dissociation of the pupils is a feature of the dorsal midbrain syndrome. Other findings include vertical gaze palsy, convergence-retraction nystagmus, impairment of vergence movements, and lid retraction.
