Anisocoria (C0003079)

Definition (MSHCZE) Stav, kdy zornice obou očí nemají stejnou velikost. Může mít příčiny jak v oku samém, tak v nervovém systému. A. je důležitý příznak intrakraniálního krvácení, přičemž zornice na postižené straně je široká a nereaguje na světlo. Opak izokorie. (cit. Velký lékařský slovník online, 2013 http://lekarske.slovniky.cz/ )
Definition (MSH) Unequal pupil size, which may represent a benign physiologic variant or a manifestation of disease. Pathologic anisocoria reflects an abnormality in the musculature of the iris (IRIS DISEASES) or in the parasympathetic or sympathetic pathways that innervate the pupil. Physiologic anisocoria refers to an asymmetry of pupil diameter, usually less than 2mm, that is not associated with disease.
