Tuberous Sclerosis in Children

About Your Child's Care and Condition

Hearing that your child has tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), a rare genetic condition, is stressful. We can help you understand the illnesses associated with tuberous sclerosis and offer treatment through a TSC Alliance certified clinic managed by our nephrologists, urologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons. Together, we’ll help your child grow and thrive.

Neurocutaneous syndromes like tuberous sclerosis are lifelong disorders that lead to tumors forming in the brain and on vital organs, including the kidneys. Symptoms include kidney cysts, seizures and developmental delays. Kidney problems develop in 70-80 percent of people who have tuberous sclerosis. Medications can help and surgery may be needed if complications develop.
