Sturge-Weber

SturgeWeber syndrome is a rare disorder that is present at birth. Affected individuals have a large port-wine stain birthmark on their face, which is caused by blood vessel abnormalities. People with SturgeWeber syndrome also develop blood vessel abnormalities in the brain called leptomeningeal angiomas.
