Abstract

COSTA, C. M. de Castro; HEES, J. Van  and  VALE, D. C. do. A hypothetical immunemediated unifying mechanism for the Holmes-Adie syndrome. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 1988, vol.46, n.2, pp. 198-200. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X1988000200013.

The Holmes-Adie syndrome consists of pupillotonia, arreflexia and autonomic dysfunction. Some explanations for these different symptoms have been attempted, centred upen neuropathological and electrophysiological findings. A hypothetical immunemediated mechanism, as in the Guillain Barré syndrome, is presented in this paper for explaining the three chief symptoms of the syndrome.
