edited by John B. Bodensteiner, MD, and E. Steve Roach, MD, 90 pp, with illus, $49.95, ISBN 0-9670484-0-0, Mt Freedom, NJ, Sturge-Weber Foundation, 1999.
This book provides a comprehensive compilation of current knowledge about Sturge-Weber syndrome and serves as a useful reference for pediatric and adult neurologists, neurosurgeons, ophthalmologists, and parents of those affected by this uncommon neurocutaneous disorder.
Concisely written chapters cover common clinical problems, such as epilepsy and neurological and visual impairment. I found the chapters on ophthalmology and neuroimaging particularly useful. When the book is used as a reference source, the reader may not notice the repetitious background material, which allows each chapter to stand alone.
