First described in the 1880s, tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), also known as Bourneville’s Disease, is a genetic disease that affects multiple organs. It can cause tumors in the skin, kidneys, brain, heart, eyes, lungs, teeth as well as other organ systems.
In most individuals, the disease affects only some of these organs. The severity of TSC can range from mild skin abnormalities to, in severe cases, mental retardation or renal failure.
