Preview

Horner’s syndrome can be caused by a lesion anywhere along the oculosympathetic pathway. Although there may be other signs that might help with localization of the lesion, the syndrome often occurs in isolation. We review the approach to the patient with suspected Horner’s syndrome, with special attention to the role of investigations such as pharmacologic pupil testing and imaging.
