Tuberous sclerosis (TS) or tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), also known as Bourneville disease or Bourneville–Pringle disease, is an autosomal dominant disorder classically characterized by the presence of hamartomatous growths in multiple organs. A combination of symptoms may include seizures, developmental delay, behavioral problems, skin abnormalities, and lung and kidney diseases. The authors present a case of a 18 year-old female patient with a history of TS, epileptic episodes, mental retardation, and papillary formations in multiple organs located at the abdominal, axillary, cervical, facial, and genital region.
