Sturge-Weber syndrome

Posted: Sep, 21 2018

Sturge-Weber syndrome is a disorder that affects the skin, neurological system, as well as sometimes the eyes and internal organs. Sturge-Weber syndrome is characterized by a port-wine stain or capillary malformation near the eyes and mid-face. This vascular malformation may be associated with many other symptoms, such as simple, partial seizures, developmental delays, calcification of the tissue that covers the brain and spinal cord (leptomeninges), glaucoma, and weakness on the other side of the body (contralateral hemiplegia).
