Though there are serious life-threatening causes of unilateral pupil dilation, a common cause is a topical exposure to anticholinergic medications. Other causes may include a brain mass or bleed.

Thank you for closing out this segment with the informal wwidn conversation. Our UC system locations have a few diagnostic limitations for the symptoms of chest pain, difficulty breathing, etc. We don't have poc trop. or d-dimer. I have noticed that some providers triage the patients at the door and immediately send to the e.r. because of our limitations, and others do a physical exam, ekg, chest x-ray, then discharge home with advice to follow up with pcp. I think I land somewhere between those two depending on history, and other variables. However, I am not always 100% confident that I shouldn't have leaned a little the other way.

HI Brian, thx for posting. There are certainly some obvious (74 yo man w back pain and hypotension or a 47 year old w chest pain which was just struck by a baseball) but for the middle presentations, it is certainly reasonable to do a quick H&P and ECG and see if it is something that can be diagnosed in the UC
Thx for the conversation!

Hey guys...I am 12 days out from surgery and doing pretty well (neck is fine, upper back is killing me), trying to get caught up on the UC Rap material. Just did the first segment and had to pop back with the question....What about Adie's Pupil? Matt Mullen

Mike W., MD -

Thx Matt, good point about the Adie's pupil... important to consider!
