Abstract Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant multisystem neurocutaneous disorder. TSC results in hamartomatous lesions primarily involving the skin, central nervous system, kidneys, eyes, heart, and lungs. The clinical findings and severity of TSC are highly variable. Recent advances in our understanding of the complexities of the TSC1 and TSC2 genes are making genotype-phenotype correlations possible. While managing seizures, cognitive dysfunction, and behavioral abnormalities are the primary responsibility of the neurologist, familiarity with all aspects of this disease helps provide better comprehensive care for affected individuals.
