Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is characterized by a facial capillary hemangioma (port wine stain) involving the periorbital area, forehead or scalp, a venous angioma of the leptomeninges and a choroidal angioma. Following normal early development, children with SWS often experience neurological and developmental deterioration in association with the onset of seizures and consequently suffer a high rate of disability. The classical imaging finding in these children is the evidence of calcification in the occipital area. The striking features of the EEG in SWS are the attenuation and the excess of slow activities. Recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment, particularly the surgical options are discussed.
