In brief: See below

Horner's syndrome is a constellation of findings including eyelid drooping (ptosis), constriction of the pupils (miosis), and decreased sweat (anhidrosis) on the same side of the face.
It's caused by a problem in the nervous system. Occasionally it can be from a cancer pushing on the nerves in the chest that feed the face.
