A 2-year-old girl with recent chickenpox infection was noted to have a fixed and dilated right pupil. Diluted 0.1% pilocarpine eyedrop test was successful in constructing the dilated right pupil. Cranial nerve examination and computer tomography brain scan were otherwise normal. We report this case as internal ophthalmoplegia, or post-viral Adie’s pupil, which appears to be extremely rare.
