Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Traumatic facial diplegia is an uncommon pathology, and is usually associated with bitemporal bone fractures. Traumatic Horner syndrome is mostly associated with carotid artery dissection. We present a case with traumatic facial diplegia and a unilateral Horner syndrome where the mechanisms of injury were unusual. The patient had developed his neurological deficits 9 days following trauma. We discuss the mechanisms of the facial palsy and Horner syndrome and the importance of their diagnosis.
