Abstract

Horner syndrome (HS) is a neurological involvement characterised by myositis, ptosis, enophthalmus and anhydrosis. HS is important in forensic medicine applications because it creates a permanent facial involvement (PFI) that disrupts the symmetry of face. This evaluation aims to discuss the PFI determinations and disability regulations in two cases where HS was found in the examinations of the 2nd Specialisation Board of the Forensic Medicine Institute.
