Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a genetic disorder affecting cellular differentiation, proliferation, and migration early in development, resulting in a variety of hamartomatous lesions effecting vital organs.
Prevalance of Tuberous sclerosis is reported to be less than 1 in 10,000 of population. Tuberous sclerosis is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD)
