Enlargement of the diploic space is another imaging feature indicating a prominent extraaxial involvement. Abnormalities of the ipsilateral eye may occur in Sturge-Weber syndrome Carotid angiographies of 11 patients with Sturge-Weber syndrome revealed cerebral venous abnormalities in each. An abnormal cerebral venous drainage pattern was found, consisting of lack of superficial cortical veins and associated nonfilling of the superior sagittal sinus, enlargement and tortuosity of the deep subependymal and deep medullary veins, and occasionally bizarre courses of.
Sturge-Weber syndrome, also known as encephalotrigeminal angiomatosis, is a rare neurocutaneous disorder. It is clinically characterized by epilepsy, progressive mental retardation, and facial telangiectatic nevi, often in the distribution of a trigeminal nerve division. The pathogenesis is believed to be related to a vascular steal phenomenon. A case of prenatal diagnosis of Sturge-Weber syndrome associated with polymicrogyria is reported. The diagnosis was based on a unique association with unilateral hemispheric gyriform calcification, focal hemispheric atrophy and white matter changes on prenatal imaging including ultrasound and MRI. Polymicrogyria, which is exceptionally associated with Sturge-Weber syndrome, is suggestive of. The vascular morphology and the abnormal angiographic flow patterns in an infant with Sturge-Weber cerebral angiomatosis are analyzed. A hypothesis explaining the occurence, dynamics and long term effects of these flow abnormalities is presented.

Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a rare disorder characterized by the association of a facial birthmark called a port-wine birthmark, neurological abnormalities, and eye abnormalities such as glaucoma. SWS can be thought of as a spectrum of disease in which individuals may have abnormalities affecting all three of these systems (i.e. brain, skin. Sturge-Weber syndrome is a rare, congenital, neuro-oculo-cutaneous disorder which is characterised extra-orally by unilateral port wine stains on the face, glaucoma, seizures and mental retardation, and intra-orally by ipsilateral gingival haemangioma which frequently affects the maxilla or mandible. In the present case, a 15-year-old female patient presented with a port wine stain on the. 28 Tuberous Sclerosis and Sturge-Weber Syndrome. Tuberous sclerosis is an autosomal dominant (and spontaneously occurring) condition defined by facial adenoma sebaceum, seizures, and mental retardation. Intracranial findings are hamartomatous lesions consisting of subependymal nodules and cortical tubers Five infantile and one adult case of Sturge-Weber disease were studied pathologically. The calcification occurring under the leptomeningeal angiomatosis increased with advancing age. Light and electron microscopy of two cases showed the smallest, and therefore possibly the earliest, calcifications occurred in perithelial cells. It is hypothesized the cause of calcification is anoxic injury to. . It includes port-wine naevus flammeus confined to a unilateral trigeminal nerve territory, as well as choroidal and leptomeningeal angiomatosis, the latter being typically limited to one hemisphere, ipsilateral to the cutaneous lesions
The original description of Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) by William Sturge in 1879 was of a triad of extensive facial, scalp and truncal capillary malformation (port-wine stain, PWS), contralateral focal seizures suggested to be due to an ipsilateral abnormality on the surface of the brain, and ipsilateral intraocular vascular malformation with glaucoma. 1 Kalischer confirmed the presence of. 2. Introduction • Skull radiographs were once considered an essential step in the evaluation of a patient presenting with neurological signs and symptoms. • The role of Plain X-ray skull has been redefined with the advent of CT and MRI. • In patients presenting with stroke, epilepsy, dementia or in post-operative cases, skull X-rays. Graves ophthalmopathy is the most common cause of exophthalmos in adults more prevalent in women than men (4:1 ratio). It is an autoimmune inflammatory condition of orbital tissues, particularly the extraocular muscles andorbital fat. Usually bilateral and symmetric, thyroid ophthalmopathy can be unilateral Non-contrast CT showing cortical calcifications and atrophy in the left occipital lobe in a patient with Sturge-Weber Syndrome.Due to leptomeningeal angiomatous venous plexus there are dystrophic cortical changes. In microscopy study those patients have a plexus of multiple small thin-walled telangiectatic capillaries or venules in the subarachnoid space between pia and arachnoid membranes
The Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS), also known as encephalotrigeminal angiomatosis, encephalofacial angiomatosis, angio-encephalo-cutaneous syndrome, vascular neuro-oculo-cutaneous syndrome, or Sturge-Kalischer-Weber syndrome, is a congenital malformation of cephalic venous microvasculature. It more commonly occurs on one side of the head. Sturge Weber syndrome (SWS) or Sturge Weber Dimitri or encephalotrigeminal angiomatosis (Fig.4) is a rare (incidence 1:50000) and usually a sporadic congenital malformation in which fetal cortical veins fail to develop normally, which produces stasis and occlusion and secondary an anoxic cortex and chronic venous ischaemia [1-4] Sturge-Weber syndrome Enlarged angiomatous choroid plexus ipsilateral tomalformation Infectious/inflammatory cysts Neurocysticercosis Multiple cysts common (parenchyma, subarachnoid space, ventricles) Not associated with choroid plexus May be migratory Look for scolex, other signs of NCC (e.g., parenchymal Ca++) 58 Sturge-Weber syndrome is a rare nonhereditary developmental condition with neurological and skin disorder, characterized by presence of port wine stain on the face along with ocular disorders, oral manifestations and leptomeningeal angiomas. Here we present an unusual case of Sturge-Weber syndrome with osseous hypertrophy of maxilla Leptomeningeal enhancement on T1‐weighted imaging and four indirect signs of leptomeningeal angioma (choroid plexus enlargement, cerebral atrophy, signal inversion of the white matter with T2 hyposignal, and T1 hypersignal) were screened on the first MRI scan and correlated with clinical and/or radiological diagnosis of SWS

Radiology 101: 111-118, 197 Sturge-Weber syndrome is a rare disorder that occurs with a frequency of approximately 1 per 50,000. The disease is characterized by an intracranial vascular anomaly, leptomeningeal angiomatosis, most often involving the occipital and posterior parietal lobes. Facial cutaneous vascular malformations, seizures, and glaucoma are among the most. Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a very rare condition. It probably occurs in 1 in 20,000 to 1 in 50,000 live births. Sturge-Weber Syndrome comprises a birthmark (called a 'port wine' stain), usually on one side of the face and an abnormality of the brain. The abnormality is due to abnormal blood vessels on the surface of the brain

The imaging characteristics of SWS are described They can cause retinal detachments and simulate the presentation of uveal melanoma. 1 They may occur as part of the eye findings in patients with Sturge-Weber syndrome. Retinal hemangiomas occur in 25% to 50% of patients with von Hippel-Landau disease and in patients with Sturge-Weber syndrome ( Fig. 52.2C-E )
Sturge-Weber syndrome is a condition that affects the development of certain blood vessels, causing abnormalities in the brain, skin, and eyes from birth. Sturge-Weber syndrome has three major features: a red or pink birthmark called a port-wine birthmark, a brain abnormality called a leptomeningeal angioma, and increased pressure in the eye. CHORUS is a hypertext medical reference. More than 1100 documents describe diseases, anatomy, and radiologic findings The Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) and Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) were included in the phakomatoses together with neurofibromatosis, tuberous sclerosis, and von Hippel-Lindau syndrome in 1937 . In support of this hypothesis, and based on histopathological observations, Hogan and Zimmerman [ 2 ] in 1962 suggested that the phakomatoses are.
Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS) is the association of a facial port-wine stain with abnormal vessels on the surface of the brain (leptomeningeal angioma), glaucoma or both. Some people have an isolated intracranial variant, meaning abnormal brain blood vessels with no skin or eye symptoms. SWS does NOT generally run in families Beim Sturge-Weber-Syndrom handelt es sich um einen Komplex mehrerer Krankheitszeichen, welche unter diesem Begriff zusammengefasst werden. Darüber hinaus existieren für das Sturge-Weber-Syndrom noch weitere Begriffe, welche in der medizinischen Fachliteratur und im Fachjargon verwendet werden Results of radiological examination of the skull showed a remarkable hypertrophy of the bones of the ipsilateral side of the nevus flammeus. The combination of Sturge-Weber and Klippel-Trénaunay syndromes indicates a nosological relationship. References. 1. Schirmer RS: Ein Fall von Telangiektasie Sturge-Weber syndrome is a problem with the way blood vessels grow in the skin, eyes, and brain. Blood vessels grow too much and form growths called angiomas: An angioma (an-jee-OH-muh) in the skin is a birthmark called a port-wine stain. Babies with Sturge-Weber are born with port-wine birthmarks on their face or scalp Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a rare, congenital disease which frequently involves the eye. It is important that ophthalmologists recognize this syndrome and are aware of its range of ocular manifestations
THE Sturge-Weber syndrome is usually easy to recognize. It consists of angiomatosis of the upper portion of the face and the cerebral leptomeninges, with progressive calcification in the underlying cerebral cortex. 1 These abnormalities are usually unilatera l.Atrophy of the involved cerebral hemisphere may be present, along with contralateral hemiparesis, focal seizures, and mental retardation A 40-year-old man presents with decreased vision 3 weeks after undergoing a 2-stage Baerveldt implantation. Ocular history shows Sturge-Weber syndrome, secondary glaucoma, and chronic retinal detachment. Examination showed a red glow of the fundus with shifting subretinal fluid and retinal.. ar matrix molecule expression, as well as aberrant brain vascular innervation, contribute to the vascular malformation and its consequences. New magnetic resonance sequences may be useful for the early diagnosis of Sturge-Weber syndrome and perfusion magnetic resonance imaging, single photon emission computed tomography imaging, and positron emission tomography imaging studies are suggesting. Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a rare neurocutaneous syndrome characterized by port-wine stain, leptomeningeal angiomatosis, and glaucoma. Due to the involvement of the nervous system, patients are often accompanied with epilepsy. It reported that 75% of patients with SWS did not respond to standard antiepileptic drugs Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS), also called encephalofacial angiomatosis, is a congenital neurocutaneous disorder characterized by: Diagnosis of SWS is based on clinical and radiological findings.
