Abstract

PHACES syndrome is a neurocutaneous disorder characterized by the presence of segmental hemangiomas with associated anomalies of the posterior fossa, cerebral vasculature, cardiovascular system, eyes, and ventral or midline structures. We present the ?rst case of propranolol-responsive congenital trigeminal and facial nerve palsies secondary to an intracranial hemangioma in a patient with PHACES syndrome.
