A male patient aged 45 years presented in March 2016 at the Glocal Hospital, Krishnanagore, West Bengal, India, with the complaint of sweating only in the left half of the body, particularly in the face, while the other half does not sweat (Figure 1). He had noticed this phenomenon for the last several years. BP was 120/85 mmHg. There were no rashes or itching in the body. Routine examination of blood, urine and stool did not reveal any abnormalities. The thyroid function tests of both the patients were normal. The patient was not diabetic or hypertensive.
