Abstract

Tuberous Sclerosis Complex is an autosomal dominant phakomatosis. This neurocutaneous disorder usually presents with seizures, facial angiofibroma and mental retardation (Vogt’s triad). Here we report a case where a 25 year old gentleman presented with recurrent seizures, and was diagnosed to have tuberous sclerosis complex.
