The Sturge-Weber syndrome or encephalotrigeminal angiomatosis is a rare neurological and congenital disorder with a frequency of 1 in 50,000 births. This syndrome is a nonhereditary developmental condition and is characterized by the presence of congenital capillary malformation and a hamartomatous vascular proliferation involving the face (port-wine stain or facial birthmark), sometimes skull and the tissues of brain, jaws, oral soft and hard tissues and rarely other body organs. Seizures, mental retardation, and cortical calcification (tram-tracks) and congenital glaucoma may be seen in this syndrome. We report here a 40-year-old female with Sturge-Weber syndrome associated with bilateral cutaneous capillary malformation on her face, neck, hands and feet and also gingival enlargement.
