Pupillary abnormalities can be a potential cause of migraine with photophobia. A 32-year-old female developed Adie's pupil following concussion injury which triggered severe episodes of migraine with extreme photophobia. We used diluted Pilocarpine drops (0.125%) for treatment and the patient had significant improvement in MIDAS (Migraine Disability Assessment) score after treatment. This case highlights the importance of pupillary examination in cases of migraine.
