Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) occurs in 1 in 6,000 individuals. TSC is a generic disorder characterized by abnormal skin pigmentations (hypopigmented mascules, shagreen patches) and tumor formation in multiple organ systems (brain, heart, lungs, kidney, eyes). At the UT Tuberous Sclerosis Center, we consult with the patient and family, the primary care physician or pediatrician, and with specialists familiar with the particular complications of Tuberous Sclerosis Complex, to provide comprehensive care for our patients.

 

Clinic is held the 1st Monday of each month at the UT Professional Building in the Texas Medical Center.
