The medical history, clinical signs of anhidrosis
, pain insensitivity, genetic tests, and negative histamine flare tests of our patient sufficed to endorse the diagnosis of CIPA
Horner's syndrome (also called oculosympathetic paresis) typically consists of miosis, ptosis, and hemifacial anhidrosis
and is a well-described neurological syndrome that is useful clinically for neurological localization.

(1,4-5) Autonomic nervous system (ANS) dysfunction manifests as anhidrosis

Characteristics of Horner's Syndrome or sympathetic blockage include ptosis, miosis, anhidrosis
, and a slight increase in body temperature (Lipov et al., 2013) and nasal congestion (Gutierrez, 2015).The complication rate of SGB is 1.7 per 1,000 procedures, indicating high safety with low complications (Kime, 2014).

El sindrome de Horner se caracteriza por miosis (disminucion patologica del diametro pupilar), ptosis palpebral (caida del parpado superior) y anhidrosis
facial (sequedad de la piel facial).
