Horner Syndrome

  • Horner syndrome

    Horner syndrome results from an interruption of the sympathetic nerve supply to the eye and is characterized by the classic triad of miosis partial ptosis, and loss of hemifacial sweating.

  • Horner syndrome

    Decreased sweating on the affected side of the face, Drooping eyelid (ptosis), Sinking of the eyeball into the face, Small (constricted) pupil (the black part in the center of the eye)

  • Horner syndrome

    Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. There is no treatment for Horner syndrome itself. When certain drugs have caused for the symptoms of the condition, we need to consult our doctor and report for the unusuality. Avoid neck injury, so to avoid the hazards of acquiring Horner’s syndrome.Have or practice a healthy diet and lifestyle. By this we can avoid the predisposing factors of the disease condition

  • Horner syndrome

    Horner's syndrome (HS) is caused by an interruption of the cervical sympathetic pathway to the eye and the face. Acquired HS is mainly caused by benign or malignant neoplasms, and in patients with a history of cancer, it is almost always the result of tumor infiltration into the periphery or the central region of the cervical sympathetic chain.We present the case of a 52-year-old patient with long-term disease-free survival (6 years) after a radical mastectomy for breast cancer who presented with cervicobrachialgia and typical HS due to a left lateral-cervical and supraclavicular lymph nodal mass. Treatment of the metastatic disease with taxanes and concurrent trastuzumab resulted in a complete pain resolution, as well as long-term clinical and radiologic remission; however, the neurological cohort of HS remained as the expression of permanent damage to the sympathetic pathway.This report presents a highly rare case of HS as the first and solitary appearance of metastatic disease in a breast cancer patient.
