Anhydrosis means lack of sweating. It is also known by a number of other names including Adiaphoresis[1][2][3][4], Ischidrosis[1], Hypohidrosis[5]:778, Oligidria, Oligohidrosis and Sweating deficiency.



It may be caused by underactivity of the sympathetic nervous system. Eccrine sweat glands are innervated via muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. Hence antimuscarinic drugs cause anhidrosis.
