What to know about Horner's Syndrome

About 1.42 people per 100,000 under the age of 19 will experience Horner's Syndrome. It impacts the nerve pathway between the brain and the side of the face that is impacted by it. Of those who have Horner's Syndrome in Texas and throughout America, about 1 in 6,250 will develop the condition at birth. There are many different signs that a person has this condition. For instance, the pupils in each eye may be a different size.

The iris of each eye may be a different color in a person who has Horner's Syndrome. Furthermore, the eye that is impacted by the condition may have a droopy eyelid or appear to be bloodshot. Those who have this syndrome may display one or two symptoms or all possible symptoms that come with it. Once the condition is diagnosed, there are many different ways that it can be cured.

In some cases, the nerve will heal on its own given enough time to do so. In other cases, it may be necessary for a doctor to prescribe medication or fix the problem through surgery. A baby's prognosis depends partially on the severity of the condition as well as how long it takes to detect and fix it. It is possible for a person to experience symptoms for the rest of his or her life.

Children who experience birth injuries may not be able to go to school, hold a job or otherwise live normal lives. Therefore, they may be entitled to compensation for lost future earnings and other punitive damages. Mothers who are injured while giving birth could also pursue damages from their doctors or others who may be liable for those injuries. An attorney may assist those who wish to take action in a childbirth negligence case.
