Déviation conjuguée, also termed conjugate eye deviation (CED) or ipsilesional gaze shift, is a medical sign indicating brain damage (e.g. a stroke in the middle cerebral artery[1]), wherein the pupils of the eye tend to move toward the side of the body where the lesion is located. The symptom was described by Swiss neurologist Jean-Louis Prévost in 1868.
