Factsheet

Hunter Nelson Sturge-Weber Syndrome Center

Sturge-Weber Syndrome is a rare disorder with abnormal blood vessels in the brain, skin and eye that can cause seizures, paralysis, strokes, migraines, learning problems, vision loss, and other health issues. The recent discovery of the gene that causes Sturge-Weber syndrome was made at the Kennedy Krieger Institute by Dr. Anne Comi and her collaborators. The research continues here with new clinical drug trials for Sturge-Weber syndrome under development and novel lab research targeting the gene mutation underway.
