Nervous System Disorders Part II—A Photo Essay

A 47-year-old man presented to the ED with a drooping right eye and complained of a constant right-sided headache that involved the temporal region. Mild right-sided ptosis and miosis were noted. The patient had Horner syndrome, a functional sympathectomy of the ipsilateral eye caused by injury or disruption of the neural plexus that runs from the sympathetic chain, past the apex of the lung, and up the carotid artery to the eye.
