The asymmetric pupil can be subtle or disturbing, straightforward or perplexing, or even normal or abnormal. But by integrating your eye examination with the neurologic examination, you can figure it out--even if it is an eye examination on a dog.

Produced by James E Siegler. Music by Komiku, Lee Rosevere, and Milton Arias. Voiceover by Erika Mejia. BrainWaves' podcasts and online content are intended for medical education only and should not be used for routine clinical decision-making, no matter how physiologic you think those pupils are.
