When only 1 eye shows an enlargement of the pupil, that generally indicates either a problem within that eyeball or along the path of the optic nerve to that eye.  The optic nerves split into 2 paths at the base of the brain and go to each eye.  So, yes, any kind of inflammation or tumor in that area of the brain could cause what you are seeing.
