Dr. Amar Singh Thakur [3] | Ajay Vaid [5] | Mohit Bajaj [6]

Abstract: Tuberous Sclerosis Complex is a rare genetic disorder inherited in autosomal dominant fashion. Tuberous Sclerosis Complex or Bournevilles disease, first described by Desiree Magloire Bourneville in 1880 has a prevalence of 1 in 6000 live births1. It is a multisystem disorder involving brain, skin, kidneys, heart, eyes and lungs which becomes apparent only in late childhood, limiting the usefulness in early diagnosis in infancy. Here we report a case of 9 year old female child presenting with chief complaints of skin lesions, developmental delay and seizures in Regional Hospital, Kullu and diagnosed as Tuberous Sclerosis.
