Buzzing Sympathetic Nerves: A New Test to Enhance Anisocoria in Horner's Syndrome.

Front Neurol 2019 21;10:107. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Department of Ophthalmology, University Hospital Zurich, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Patients with suspected Horner's syndrome having equivocal pupil dilation lag and pharmacologic testing may undergo unnecessary MR imaging and work up in the case of false positive pupil test results. Our goal was to increase the diagnostic accuracy of pupillometry by accentuating the inter-ocular asymmetry of sympathetic innervation to the iris dilator with surface electrical stimulation of the median nerve using a standard electromyography machine. We hypothesized that an accentuated difference in sympathetic response between the two eyes would facilitate the diagnosis of Horner's syndrome. Read More

Dual approach for large mediastinal tumors in the thoracic outlet: transmanubrial osteomuscular sparing approach and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2019 Feb 26;14(1):42. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Kyoto University, 54 Shogoin-Kawahara-cho, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto, 606-8507, Japan.

Background: Selecting the proper surgical approach for mediastinal tumors in the thoracic outlet is difficult. Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery is ideal because of the less invasiveness; however, it is often difficult to resect tumors only by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery due to the poor visualization of the cranial side of tumors. We report two successfully treated cases by using a dual approach consisting of the transmanubrial osteomuscular sparing technique and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for aiming both the less invasiveness and the good visualization of the cranial side of tumors.

T1-T2 Disk Herniation Presenting With Horner Syndrome: A Case Report With Literary Review.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg Glob Res Rev 2018 Nov 2;2(11):e016. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Department of Orthopaedic Spine Surgery (Dr. Possley), Department of Orthopaedic Surgery (Dr. Luczak), Department of General Surgery (Dr. Angus), and Department of Orthopaedic Spine Surgery (Dr. Montgomery), Beaumont Health, Royal Oak, MI.

Horner syndrome or oculosympathetic paresis is caused by interruption of the sympathetic nerve supply to the face and eye that manifests as facial anhidrosis, blepharoptosis, and miosis. This sympathetic pathway begins in the hypothalamus and synapses in the intermediolateral gray substance of the spinal cord at C8-T2 levels making it susceptible to disruption via a high thoracic intervertebral disk herniation. We present a rare case of a patient with T1-T2 intervertebral disk herniation and Horner syndrome who was treated surgically. Read More

[Advances in research of synergistic divergence].

Zhonghua Yan Ke Za Zhi 2019 Jan;55(1):63-67

Clinical College of Ophthalmology of Tianjin Medical University, Tianjin Eye Hospital and Institute, Tianjin Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology and Vision Science, Tianjin 300020, China.

Synergistic divergence is a rare condition characterized by complete absence of adduction that is associated with simultaneous abduction of the affected eye on attempted adduction. This causes the affected eye to move further into abduction on gaze to the normal side and results in extreme divergence of both eyes. It is sometimes referred to as exotropic Duane syndrome with synergistic divergence (type 4 Duane syndrome) or congenital fibrosis syndrome with synergistic divergence. Read More

Pourfour du Petit Syndrome: A Rare Association With Cluster Headache.

Ophthalmic Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 Jan/Feb;35(1):e15-e16

Department of Ophthalmology, Nîmes University Hospital, Nîmes Cedex 9.

Pourfour du Petit syndrome is an uncommon cause of eyelid retraction, associated with unilateral mydriasis and hemifacial hyperhidrosis. This syndrome is caused by hyperactivity of the ipsilateral oculosympathetic pathway and needs to be recognized because it has an opposite clinical presentation but the same topographic and diagnostic value as Horner syndrome. The authors report a rare case of Pourfour du Petit syndrome associated with cluster headache and discuss pathophysiological hypotheses, clinical presentation, complementary exams, pharmacologic testing, treatment options, and prognosis.

Department of Pediatrics, Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University School of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Blepharoptosis (ptosis) is a common but often overlooked sign that may serve as a sign/manifestation of other conditions, ranging from a mild and purely cosmetic presentation to a severe and occasionally progressive disorder. Ptosis may show an acute onset or may manifest as a chronic disorder. Its presentation may vary: unilateral versus bilateral, progressive versus non-progressive, isolated versus complex which occurs in association with other symptoms, and congenital versus acquired (often concomitant with neuromuscular disorders).

Bilateral Hypoglossal Nerve Palsy in an Adult Patient With Repaired Tetralogy of Fallot.

Neurologist 2018 Sep;23(5):155-156

Department of Neuroscience and Rehabilitation, Ferrara University Hospital, Italy.

Introduction: Spontaneous cervical artery dissection (sCAD) is a major cause of ischemic stroke in young and middle-aged adults, but the occurrence of multiple sCADs could suggest the presence of an underlying arteriopathy. Bilateral hypoglossal nerve palsy caused by extracranial internal carotid artery dissections have been rarely described. We present the case of a 3-vessel sCAD in a patient with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (ToF). Read More

Horner syndrome as a complication after thyroid microwave ablation: Case report and brief literature review.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Aug;97(34):e11884

Department of Thyroid Surgery, First Hospital of Jilin University.

Rationale: Horner's syndrome (HS) can present as a complication of thyroid surgery, particularly after thyroid microwave ablation (MWA). HS presents clinically with eyelid ptosis, miosis, enophthalmos, anhidrosis, and vascular dilatation, all of which result from a damaged oculosympathetic chain. We aimed to try to avoid such devastating symptoms in future cases by exploring reasons for the destruction of the cervical sympathetic trunk. Read More

Horner syndrome in ipsilateral lenticulostriate stroke: a novel localization for a classic stroke syndrome.

Clin Auton Res 2018 Dec 10;28(6):583-587. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

Stroke Center and Neurology Service, Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois and University of Lausanne, Rue du Bugnon 46, 1011, Lausanne, Switzerland.

Horner's syndrome has important localizing and etiological value in acute ischemic stroke. In a prospective series of consecutive acute ischemic stroke patients, we identified three patients with Horner's syndrome and contralateral hemiparesis due to ipsilateral small deep infarction in the middle cerebral artery territory (lenticulostriate arteries). Lacunar stroke was the most likely stroke mechanism in all three patients. Read More
