First described in the 1880s, tuberous sclerosis complex, or TSC, is a genetic disease that affects multiple organs. It can cause tumors in the skin, kidneys, brain, heart, eyes, as well as other organ systems. Most patients who are mildly affected by TSC lead active and productive lives, but it is important to note that TSC is a life-long companion and patients are in need of receiving continuous follow-up care. Host Dr. Michael Greenberg welcomes Steven L. Roberds, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance in Silver Spring, Maryland to discuss tuberous sclerosis complex.
