Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a rare genetic disorder that affects about 1 in 5000 individuals worldwide. It does can affect many organs, leading to benign tumors presenting preferentially in the skin, brain, and kidneys. We report the case of a young man with cutaneous angiofibromes who is incidentally diagnosed with renal angiomyolipoma.
Tuberous sclerosis complex is a rare disease with multi-organic disorders, some of which are severe and often asymptomatic`. The role of the doctor is to make a good clinical and paraclinical examination and a good follow-up of these patients in order to save and improve their quality of life.
