BACKGROUND: Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) belongs to a group of disorders known as the phakomatoses. It is characterized by congenital hamartomatous malformations involving the eye, skin, and central nervous system. Several ocular complications are associated with SWS, including glaucoma.
CASE: A 66-year-old black man presented with a history of SWS and previously diagnosed glaucoma.
CONCLUSION: Clinicians need to be aware of cutaneous, neurologic, and ocular complications of this condition. However, glaucoma is the most common ocular complication of SWS.
