LORA, César. Case report: Unilateral Mydriasis after anesthesia. Rev. colomb. anestesiol. [online]. 2010, vol.38, n.1, pp. 102-109. ISSN 0120-3347.
A five year old male boy weighing 13 kg who had dental cavities was scheduled for a complete dental treatment. When the protective tape of the eyes was removed, a fixed right Mydriasis without any light response was observed, without any other changes in the physical examination. On the fourth day, he was assessed by neurology presenting an improvement and the pupillary size. On the fifth day the pupil returned to normal size without any sequela according to family information. A pediatric anesthesia case with unilateral Mydriasis lasting one week after surgery is presented. The differential diagnostic processes are discussed.
