Horner's syndrome may be caused by a lesion anywhere along the three-neuron pathway from the hypothalamus to the eye. This syndrome has been reported secondary to numerous causes to date. In this paper, we describe an extremely rare case of Horner's syndrome due to jugular venous extasia demonstrated by computed tomography and intravenous digital subtraction angiography.
