Adie's pupil and migraine occur in the same population. Migraine is an extremely common disease and Adies is not rare. Among 22 patients presenting with Adie's pupillotonia, eight patients had a migraine history and nine had a family history of migraine. Therefore, if a history is meticulously undertaken in patients with Adie's Syndrome, the history of migraine in the patient or in his family may be found. Since Adie's Syndrome is a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, as is the migraine syndrome, these entities may be related.
