Sturge-Weber Syndrome in Children

  • If your child has Sturge-Weber syndrome, it means that she was born with a vascular birthmark and neurological abnormalities.

    • Seizures develop in 75 to 90 percent of all children with the syndrome. The seizures often start before a child reaches age 1 and may worsen as she gets older.

    • About one-third of children with the syndrome have congenital (present at birth) glaucoma on the side with what’s called a port wine stain.
