ANY NECK PROCEDURE CAN LEAD TO HORNER SYNDROME

Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery - Abstract: Volume 25(1) January/February 2009 p 16-18 Neck Procedures Resulting in Horner Syndrome.:


"Physicians should be aware that procedures involving the neck, even relatively minor ones, may be a cause of Horner syndrome. In the evaluation of patients with newly diagnosed Horner syndrome, it is important to obtain the history of prior surgeries or procedures involving the neck that may identify a cause of sympathetic denervation and etiology of Horner syndrome."
