Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a sporadic phakomatoses and is characterized by angiomatosis of skin, eye and meninges. . Patients present with epilepsy and developmental delay since childhood. Clinical examination reveals reddish discoloration of face (referred to as port wine stain), sclera and limbs, usually on one side of body.
Imaging findings of SWS are typical. Our patient was a 30-year old lady who presented with recurrent seizures since childhood. Her developmental milestones and intelligence were within normal limits. MRI brain and MR Angiogram were done, which are shown below.
Above MRI images have shown the following findings
- Hemiatrophy on right side mainly involving right parietal and occipital lobes,
- Thickening of calvarium on the right side
- Enlargement of choroid plexus in the right lateral ventricle
- Subcortical calcifications in right parietal and occipital regions (tram track appearance)
- Moderate stenosis of right internal carotid and middle cerebral arteries.
The patient was started on anti-epileptic drugs, with which her seizures were adequately controlled.
