Abstract

Sturge-Weber syndrome is a rare syndrome present at birth, characterized by port-wine stain birthmark on face and associated with nervous system and ocular problems.1 We report a case of a 15 year old girl who presented for trabeculectomy for uncontrolled glaucoma. She was diagnosed to have Sturge-Weber syndrome. General anaesthesia was given for the procedure. Perioperative anaesthetic management is presented in this case report.
