Tuberous Sclerosis (T.S.) is an autosomal dominant inherited disease with high penetrance but variable expressivity. According to recent studies the gene for T.S. is on the distal long arm of chromosome 9.1 Criteria for diagnosis have been established and include clinical and radiological criteria.2,3
