This case, a 15-year-old female, is peculiar because she had more numerous characteristic lesions of tuberous sclerosis than other previous cases in Korea. In addition to the typical triad of tuberous sclerosis, she had shagreen patches, cafe-au-lait spot, angiomyolipomas in both kidneys, phacomas in both eyes, periventricular calcifications, and hydrocephalus due to a mass around the foramen of Monro. Biopsy, taken after complete removal of a mass around the foramen of Monro, revealed hamartoma which was made up of subependymal giant cell astrocytoma, gliosis, and spongioblastoma. With reviewing some of literatures, we present a case of the tuberous sclerosis.
