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.
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)
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
In a case of a young woman undergoing chemotherapy for gestational trophoblastic disease for whom venous port implantation was attempted due to poor peripheral vein access. Despite ultrasound guidance, the procedure was unsuccessful and complicated by a local haematoma, causing compression of the sympathetic nerves with Horner syndrome. The symptoms subsided within 3 weeks without treatment. The possible pathomechanisms of Horner syndrome after central venous cannulation are presented with suggested diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. Special emphasis must be placed on excluding carotid artery dissection because it carries the risk of subsequent cerebral vascular incidents. In the event of a carotid dissection, a multidisciplinary team must choose a pharmacological (antiplatelet drugs/anticoagulation) or interventional approach.
