QUESTION 86 OF 100

86.
Ptosis associated with Horner syndrome is due to impairment in which of the following muscles?

A. Frontalis
B. Levator palpebrae superioris **
C. Superior oblique
D. Superior rectus
E. Müller’s
** = Your answer
Weakness of the levator palpebrae superioris and superior rectus muscles is caused by oculomotor nerve palsy. Superior oblique weakness develops as a result of trochlear nerve palsy. Frontalis weakness is due to facial nerve palsy. Denervation of the sympathetically innervated Müller’s muscle leads to ptosis in Horner syndrome.
