Horner Syndrome in Giant Cell Arteritis: Case Series and Review of the Literature.

J Neuroophthalmol 2022 Mar 25. Epub 2022 Mar 25.

University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine (IS), Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Department of Ophthalmology and Vision Sciences (CL, LD, EM), University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; and Department of Medicine (EM), Division of Neurology, University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Background: Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a systemic inflammatory vasculitis that affects medium- and large-sized arteries and can result in permanent vision loss. In rare instances, Horner syndrome has been noticed at the time of GCA diagnosis, although the mechanism of both diagnoses occurring at the same time is not entirely understood. We reviewed 53 charts of all patients diagnosed with biopsy-proven GCA in tertiary neuro-ophthalmology practice to find patients who presented with new onset of Horner syndrome at the time of GCA diagnosis.

Serologic and Cytokine Signatures in Children With Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome and Coronavirus Disease 2019.

Open Forum Infect Dis 2022 Mar 24;9(3):ofac070. Epub 2022 Feb 24.

Department of Pediatrics, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Background: The serologic and cytokine responses of children hospitalized with multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C) vs coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are poorly understood.

Supraclavicular vs. Infraclavicular Brachial Plexus Nerve Blocks: Clinical, Pharmacological, and Anatomical Considerations.

Anesth Pain Med 2021 Oct 31;11(5):e120658. Epub 2021 Oct 31.

Brigham and Women's Hospital, Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Boston MA, USA.

Peripheral nerve blocks (PNB) have become standard of care for enhanced recovery pathways after surgery. For brachial plexus delivery of anesthesia, both supraclavicular (SC) and infraclavicular (IC) approaches have been shown to require less supplemental anesthesia, are performed more rapidly, have quicker onset time, and have lower rates of complications than other approaches (axillary, interscalene, etc.).

Limited induction of SARS-CoV-2-specific T cell responses in children with multisystem inflammatory syndrome compared with COVID-19.

JCI Insight 2022 02 22;7(4). Epub 2022 Feb 22.

Department of Pediatrics, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Why multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) develops after SARS-CoV-2 infection in a subset of children is unknown. We hypothesized that aberrant virus-specific T cell responses contribute to MIS-C pathogenesis. We quantified SARS-CoV-2-reactive T cells, serologic responses against major viral proteins, and cytokine responses from plasma and peripheral blood mononuclear cells in children with convalescent COVID-19, in children with acute MIS-C, and in healthy controls.

Horner's syndrome is a clinical triad composed of ptosis, miosis, and facial anhidrosis. Overall, this complication is rare but well-documented in the obstetric population receiving labor epidural analgesia, which usually follows a relatively benign transient course. Less commonly, few cases of Horner's syndrome have been reported in the pediatric population following surgical correction of scoliosis with epidural placement. Read More
