Abstract Tuberous sclerosis is an inheritable disease of varied manifestations. Hallmarks of the disease have historically been identified as infantile seizures, severe mental retardation, and facial growths. The facial lesions were formerly termed adenoma sebaceum, but are now known to be angiofibroma. We present a patient who was referred for management of large facial lesions complicated by intermittent hemorrhage. A combination of shave excision and dermabrasion led to a symptomatic and cosmetic improvement.
