Sturge-Weber syndrome is a neurocutaneous disorder classically presenting with a facial port-wine stain, vascular eye abnormalities, and an ipsilateral occipital leptomeningeal angioma. Children with Sturge-Weber syndrome often develop progressive neurologic problems. Data on the pathophysiology of Sturge-Weber syndrome are briefly reviewed. The embryologic, genetic, and pathologic considerations are discussed, as ...

A hemimedullary infarction, in which medial and lateral medullary lesions occur simultaneously, is a rare cerebrovascular disease. It has been suggested that the Babinski-Nageotte's syndrome is the classical brainstem syndrome that corresponds to hemimedullary lesion. In this study we compare clinical symptoms and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data of two ...

The Sturge-Weber syndrome consists of a large facial nevus flammeus in the distribution of the ophthalmologic division of the trigeminal nerve accompanied by ipsilateral leptomeningeal angiomatosis. Usually, when angiomatous nodules develop in a nevus flammeus of a patient with Sturge-Weber syndrome they are pyogenic granulomas. We describe an acral arteriovenous ...

We report the case of a severely mentally handicapped 30-year-old woman with Sturge-Weber syndrome who developed obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) following esophageal aspiration of two foreign bodies, which were discovered incidentally during a neck CT scan. Initial polysomnography findings revealed significant OSA with an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) of 40.8 ...

Sturge-Weber syndrome is characterized by a facial vascular nevus associated with an ipsilateral leptomeningeal angioma. Variants of this classical presentation have been described in the literature, some of which have prognostic significance. We report a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-confirmed variant of a leptomeningeal angioma contralateral to the facial nevus. We ...

A case of intracranial extraosseous 99mTc MDP uptake is presented, which was found on CT to be due to dystrophic gyral calcification characteristic of Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS). The imaging characteristics of SWS are described. The possibility of extraosseous MDP uptake should be considered when unusual or atypical 'hot spots' are ...

The aim of this report is to explain the historical differences between Klippel-Trenaunay (KT), Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber (KTW), and Klippel-Trenaunay-Servelle (KTS) syndromes. Furthermore, an attempt will be made to describe the different causes, symptoms, and consequences of the pathology, largely as a consequence of venous hypertension. The significance of these syndromes within ...

OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Spinal cord involvement in Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber (KTW) syndrome is rare. Cases of intradural spinal cord arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) have been associated with this syndrome. Likewise, cases of epidural hemangioma and angiomyolipoma have been reported to occur at the same segmental level as cutaneous hemangioma in KTW syndrome. This ...

Neurocutaneous syndromes are congenital or hereditary conditions that have many features in common: hereditary transmission, involvement of organs of ectodermal origin (nervous system, eyeball, retina, and skin), slow evolution of lesions in childhood and adolescence, and disposition to fatal malignant transformation. Except for Sturge- Weber syndrome, these major neurocutaneous syndromes ...

We describe a boy presenting with macrosomy, body asymmetry, cutis marmorata and tall stature who developed a retinoblastoma. Although he does not have macrocephaly, his clinical picture is compatible with the diagnosis of Macrocephaly-cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita syndrome (M-CMTC). Interestingly, retinoblastoma is not generally associated with overgrowth syndromes, and its ...

We report a 15-year-old boy with bilateral chylothorax complicating Gorham's syndrome. Thoracic duct ligation failed to prevent fluid reaccumulation. The patient died of lymphocytopenia. Autopsy revealed vascular proliferation in the parietal and visceral pleura as well as in the ribs, which seemed to cause persistent chylothorax responsible for the poor ...

Classic Sturge-Weber syndrome is characterized by a facial nevus and hamartomatous lesion in the brain. Hamartomatous lesions are usually located in the ipsilateral occipital region of the facial nevus. The other lobes may be involved. A few cases of Sturge-Weber syndrome without facial nevus have been reported. A 9-month-old male ...

The association of three physical findings including capillary malformation, varicosities, and hypertrophy of bony and soft tissues corresponds to Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome. This triad of findings, described by the two French physicians Klippel and Trenaunay in 1900, differs from Parkes-Weber syndrome, in that Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome does not incorporate significant hemodynamic arteriovenous ...

Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome (KTWS) is a rare mesodermal phakomatosis characterized by (1) cutaneous haemangiomata (usually unilateral and involving an extremity) (2) venous varicosities and (3) osseous and soft tissue hypertrophy, also of the affected limb. Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS), also a mesodermal phakamatosis, is characterized by meningofacial angiomatosis with cerebral calcification. Overlap ...

Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome was first reported in 1900 by Klippel and Trénaunay. The syndrome is characterized by the triad of vascular nevi, venous varicosity, and hyperplasia of soft tissue-and possibly bone-in the affected area. The original description was made with regard to the extremities. The syndrome is diagnosed on the basis ...

Speckled lentiginous nevus syndrome, a so far unrecognized cutaneous phenotype associated with neurological anomalies, is postulated on the basis of the following arguments. Phacomatosis pigmentokeratotica represents a twin spot phenomenon. One isolated half of this complex phenotype is observed rather often in the form of Schimmelpenning syndrome, whereas the other ...

Because patients with Swyer-James syndrome have almost always been treated conservatively, few reports exist of pathological findings of the lung in this syndrome. We report a case of this rare disease treated surgically and discuss pathological findings. A 36-year-old woman repeatedly contracted bronchitis and pneumothorax since adolescence, until April 26, ...

We describe a 37-year-old man complaining of right back pain and gait disturbance. He had a big soft tumor on his right back, hemihypertrophy of the right lower extremity, and right thoracic scoliosis. We diagnosed Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome based on the pathological findings of the soft tumor. Computed tomography (CT) scan ...

Fabry disease (FD) is an X-linked recessive inborn error of glycosphingolipid metabolism. Among clinical symptoms, maculopapular skin lesions, known as angiokeratoma, most often appear on the lower abdomen, scrotum, and thighs, with a tendency toward bilateral symmetry.

A posterior fossa dermoid cyst in association with the Klippel-Feil syndrome, in a 4 year old child is reported. Early diagnosis to prevent complications like neural compression, cyst rupture and staphylococcal meningitis justifies investigation for posterior fossa dermoids in cases of Klippel-Feil syndrome. Their embryological basis is discussed.
