Bottom Line: The Sturge-Weber syndrome is a rare uncommon neurocutaneous disorders with angiomas involving the leptomeninges (Leptomeningeal Angiomas) and skin of the face, typically in the ophthalmic (V1) and maxillary (V2) distributions of the trigeminal nerve.It is commonly referred to as "Sturge-Weber syndrome after Sturge and Weber who first described this affliction in 1879.This article present a case of Sturge-Weber syndrome associated with gingival enlargement, its management and follow-up results.

ABSTRACT
The Sturge-Weber syndrome is a rare uncommon neurocutaneous disorders with angiomas involving the leptomeninges (Leptomeningeal Angiomas) and skin of the face, typically in the ophthalmic (V1) and maxillary (V2) distributions of the trigeminal nerve. The cutaneous angioma is called a Port-Wine Stain. It is commonly referred to as "Sturge-Weber syndrome after Sturge and Weber who first described this affliction in 1879. This article present a case of Sturge-Weber syndrome associated with gingival enlargement, its management and follow-up results.

Figure 5: CT scan of brain showing no abnormal calcification

Mentions: Investigation that were carried out in this case included an orthopantomograph (OPG), Intra oral peri-apical radiographs (IOPA), complete hemogram, and a spiral computed tomography (CT) scan. The OPG revealed hemi facial hypertrophy in the right side of face [Figure 4]. The complete hemogram showed normal haemoglobin levels with no other abnormality in the total or differential white blood cell counts. Bleeding and clotting time were within normal limits. Spiral CT scan showed no abnormalities like calcification, atrophy with dilatation of ventricle and enlargement of sinuses [Figure 5]. Ophthalmologist investigated for any ocular disturbances like choroidal angioma, glaucoma, hemianopsia, or buphthalmos (enlargement of the coating of the eye), but no abnormalities were detected.
