An introduction to this complex condition.
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a genetic disorder that results from a mutation in one of two genes that are present in virtually all cells.
The disorder is well known for causing a wide variety of symptoms, which often differ from one individual to another.
TSC can affect almost every major organ system, and its symptoms can be anywhere from mild to severe.
Early diagnosis, careful monitoring, and intervention can dramatically improve the long-term prognosis for people with TSC.
