Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS) is a neurogenetic disease with an incidence of 1 in 20.000-50,000 live births. The less common form, which can be difficult to diagnose and only involves leptomeningeal angioma, has been defined as Type 3 Sturge Weber Syndrome. A 5.5 month old male patient with a normal neuromotor development presented with right sided partial seizures, which had been occurring frequently for the last two days and could not be controlled. A cranial magnetic resonance imaging has shown pathological contrasts in the cortical regions involving the left hemisphere and in the leptomeningeal structures. We aimed to present the case of an infant with Sturge-Weber Syndrome, which unlike the classical form was unidentifiable in physical examination and diagnosed using imaging methods.
