Klippel-Trenaunay and Sturge-Weber overlapping syndrome in a Saudi boy.

Amal Y Kentab.

Abstract
Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS) is a rare, sporadic neurocutaneous disorder. It is typically characterized by unilateral, posterior leptomeningeal angiomas that calcify, glaucoma, and facial portwine tains. Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (KTS) is a rare congenital syndrome characterized by ipsilateral cutaneous capillary malformations, venous varicosities, and bony or soft tissue overgrowth of the affected limbs. The clinical, neuroradiological features as well as the outcome of a Saudi boy who was referred to the Division of Pediatric Neurology, King Saud University Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with intractable focal seizure and left-sided hemiparesis who was eventually diagnosed with combined SWS and KTS is described here. The rare coexistence of SWS and KTS should be suspected in a child presenting with neurological manifestation such as epilepsy, mental sub normality, or hemiparesis, with port-wine staining or capillary hemangioma and enlarged limbs. Awareness may help in improving the quality of life and survival of these patients.

Key words: Cerebral angiomatosis; Cerebral calcification; Glaucoma; Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome; Sturge-Weber syndrome
