Abstract:

We present a case of Horners Syndrome and complete brachial plexus blockade following epidural bolus of lidocaine for labor analgesia that was initially misdiagnosed as a cerebrovascular accident. Use of the catheter was discontinued and the episode resolved with expectant management. Horners Syndrome with brachial plexus involvement following lumbar anesthesia may be a startling event for the patient and provider but is otherwise benign and resolves without sequelae1.
