Abstract

A 46-year-old male patient was admitted due to sudden hyperhidrosis of face. His past history was chemotherapy with lung cancer, bone metastasis, and brain metastasis. Horner syndrome, such as ptosis, persisted after stellate ganglion blockade. Compression findings around the ganglion and nerve damage were suspected. No unusual abnormalities were observed. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed pressure on the right side of the oculomotor nerve. Ptosis was improved by radiation therapy.
