History and Symptoms

Most of the neurologic manifestations of tuberous sclerosis are due to the effects of hamartia (malformed tissue such as the cortical tubers),hamartomas (benign growths such as facial angiofibroma and subependymal nodules) and, very rarely, cancerous hamartoblastomas on the brain tissue.

In infants, the first clue is often the presence of seizures, delayed development or white patches on the skin. A full clinical diagnostic workup should be undertaken in such situations.[3][4]
