Loss of sweating in the right side with hyperhidrosis on the left side predominantly involving the skin over T6-8 vertebral region

Ross' syndrome consists of Adie's syndrome (myotonic pupils and absent deep tendon reflexes) plus segmental anhidrosis (typically associated with compensatory hyperhidrosis).[1]

It was characterized in 1958[2][3] by A.T. Ross.[4]

By 1992, eighteen cases had been documented.[5]
