A 70-year-old woman suffered an anterior dorsal hypothalamic hemorrhage that caused an ipsilateral Horner syndrome (HS) as the only focal neurologic manifestation. This is only the second reported case of hypothalamic hemorrhage producing HS. Because HS was the sole focal neurologic manifestation, its confirmation with topical apraclonidine drops was a valuable clue toward prompt localization of the patient's confusional state.
