Jeffrey,

Sturge Weber syndrome is a facial naevus (birthmark) in association with 
calcification ('tram tracking') on skull x-rays. There may be asociated 
brain and retinal haemangiomas. Epilepsy is common. Any good text on 
neurology will give the details. The only book I am aware of on the 
subject is very old and long out of print 'The Sturge Weber Syndrome' by 
Alexander and Norman published by Wright in Bristol, England.
