Lab ScienceThe diagnosis of Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) depends on a facial port-wine birthmark combined with glaucoma, abnormal blood vessels in the brain, or both. A few patients having leptomeningeal involvement, without eye or skin involvement, receive the diagnosis of "isolated intracranial variant of SWS". Neurologic, ophthalmologic, dermatologic and other evaluations are recommended to make the diagnosis of SWS and screen for associated complications.
