The Cause of Sturge-Weber syndrome has been Discovered!

GROUNDBREAKING DISCOVERY OF THE CAUSE OF SWS GIVES PATIENTS HOPE:
According to Anne Comi, M.D., co-senior author of the research that produced the groundbreaking discovery, Sturge-Weber Syndrome and port-wine birthmarks are caused by a somatic activating mutation in the GNAQ gene which occurs during early pregnancy. Although more research must be done, the study, published (May ’13) in the New England Journal of Medicine, brings researchers closer than ever to a cure.
