Pupils dilated: Consider a toxic ingestion of a medication or poison. If he is acting otherwise normal then perhaps not likely, but if he had any other symptoms, such as altered mental status, vomiting, fever, etc then urgent medical attention may be warranted. A urine sample possibly could be used for testing for toxin exposure.
