Pre-ganglionic Horner’s syndrome (#2)

Pre-ganglionic Horner’s syndrome (#2)
After instillation of 10% cocaine into both eyes, the right pupil failed to dilate while the left pupil dilated to 7 mm. Failure of the smaller pupil to dilate in response to cocaine confirms the diagnosis of Horner’s syndrome. This patient’s Horner’s was due to a mediastinal neurilemmoma.
