Tuberous sclerosis

Tuberous sclerosis

This is an unusual disease, with an incidence of 1/10 000 newborn children. Symptoms from different organs are common. Various types of skin lesions are the most common symptom, and can be found in 90% of patients. Angiofibroma in the face and periungual fibromas on the fingers and toes are treated with a CO2 laser. Laser treatment is usually carried out under general anesthesia.
