Normally, this network goes away in the ninth week of development. New England Journal of Medicine. Similarly, the correlation coefficient between EEG score and the larger overall SWS neuroscore encompassing seizures as well as other clinical findings was even weaker and less significant, 0. Facial port-wine stains are capillary malformations, which can reveal, very rarely, Sturge-Weber syndrome SWS. Ewen, Kennedy Krieger Institute.
