Abstract

Sturge-Weber Syndrome is an uncommon neurocutaneous syndrome usually presenting with a triad of cutaneous, neurologic, and ophthalmological symptoms. The most common ocular manifestation in Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a refractory glaucoma which is generally associated with neurologic and uveal manifestations. This report presents a rare and incomplete form of SWS: A vascular malformation of the face, an ipsilateral glaucoma that responded well to medical treatment, without choroidal hemangioma nor neurologic manifestations.

Keywords: Sturge-Weber syndrome; Uncommon presentation; Glaucoma treatment
