Abstract

Tuberous sclerosis is a rare heredofamilial disease involving multiple organs, classically associated with the clinical triad of adenoma sebaceum, epilepsy, and mental retardation. We have recently experienced a case of tuberous sclerosis, 18-year-old male patient, who had typical adenoma sebaceum and generalized epileptic seizure. Plain skull film showed multiple calcified paraventricular subependymal nodules and brain CT scan disclosed characteristic calcified tubers adjacent to the frontal horn and body of the lateral ventricle.
