Languages of publication


Horner's syndrome is most often caused by a tumour compressing the sympathetictrunk. Spindle cell lipoma (SCL) is a rare tumour, corresponding to just 1.5% of the benigntumours of soft tissues. Its most common localisation is subcutaneous tissue in theupper part of the body. This paper presents a rare case of Horner's syndrome caused bya SCL of the neck.A 42-year-old male patient was admitted to the ENT Ward of the Mazovian SpecialHospital in Siedlce because of a neck tumour on the left side. Laryngological examinationrevealed only a hard tumour with a limited mobility on the left side of the neck. Oph-thalmological and neurological consultations indicated Horner's syndrome. Fine-needleaspiration biopsy gave no clear diagnosis. The patient was qualified for surgery. Thetumour was radically excised and sent for histopathological examination. Thefinal his-topathological diagnosis was: SCL. Symptoms of the Horner's syndrome disappearedwithin 3 weeks after the surgery.The discussed case should be noted because of untypical SCL localisation within thecervical perivascular space, and also because of presence of symptoms of Horner's synd-rome caused by compression of the tumour on the sympathetic trunk that disappearedfollowing the surgical treatment.
