Sturge-Weber syndrome is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by angiomatosis of face, eye and leptomeninges and nevus flammeus is distributed along the trigminal nerve in face, often accompanying congenital glaucoma. We experienced a case of Sturge-Weber syndrome in an 11-year-old Korean girl of bilateral facial nevus flammeus with bilateral glaucoma treated by trabeculectomy and laser trabeculoplasty previously, but glaucomatous optic neuropathy progressed due to inadequate intraocular pressure control, and we could obtain successful result after trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C.
Key Words: Bilateral glaucoma;Nevus flammeus;Mitomycin-C;SturgeWeber syndrome;Trabeculectomy
