Also known as Bourneville disease, named after D?sir? - Magloire Bourneville, the French physician who discovered the potatolike appearance of cortical lesions in the brains of patients with this condition [1], tuberous sclerosis is the second most common phakomatosis behind neurofibromatosis type 1. It has a prevalence estimated to be 1 in 6000 with approximately 1.5 million people affected worldwide [2].
