Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS), also known as encephalotrigeminal angiomatosis, is a rare vascular neurocutaneous alteration. It is characterized by facial nevus - usually unilateral, seizures, hemiparesis, intracranial calcification, mental retardation and ocular involvement. Nevertheless each case of SWS is unique and exhibits the characteristic features to a varying degree. We report here a case of SWS who presented with features suggestive of this syndrome, and having bilateral facial nevus as well.
