Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Sturge-Weber Syndrome:
Symptoms of the disorder, which
vary widely among patients, may include eye and internal organ
irregularities. The most apparent symptom is a facial birthmark or port
wine stain which is present at birth and usually involves at least one
upper eyelid and the forehead. The stain, varying from light pink to deep
purple, is caused by an overabundance of capillaries just beneath the
surface of the affected skin. Neurological symptoms include excessive
blood vessel growth on the surface of the brain (angiomas). These angiomas
are typically located on the posterior or occipital region of the brain
and cause seizures, which often start before one year of age and may
worsen with age. The convulsions usually appear on the side of the body
opposite the port wine stain and vary in severity. A weakening or loss of
use of the side of the body opposite the port wine stain (hemiparesis) may
also develop. Developmental delay of motor and cognitive skills may occur.
Glaucoma (increased pressure within the eye) may be present at birth or
develop later. Buphthalmos (enlargement of the coatings of the eye) may
also occur in the eye that is affected by the port wine stain.
Sturge-Weber syndrome rarely affects other body organs.
