  We report a case of an adult female presenting with sudden onset unilateral dilated pupil. She was unresponsive to light reflex and had poor response to near reflex. Rest of her ophthalmological examination and systemic examination was normal except for diminished lower deep reflex tendon reflexes. Her serum vitamin B12 levels was also very low. A diagnosis of Adie’s syndrome was made and the patient was reassured.
