Sturge Weber Syndrome CT Brain

Clinical details: A 14 y o male with mental retardation, seizures and a pink patch on left side fore head.

This non contrast CT brain shows:
Left hemiatrophy.
Dense left temporo parietal cortical gyriform calcification.
Poor development of ipsilateral hemicranium, thickening of bony calvarium.
Enlargement of ipsilateral choroid plexus.
Hyperpneumatisation of left frontal sinus.

Clinical and imaging findings are very typical of Sturge Weber syndrome.
