Tuberous sclerosis complex presenting as pulmonary lymphangioleiomyomatosis - A clinicoradiological diagnosis

K Gupta, A Goyal, K Saggar, A Banerjee

Abstract


Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) manifests predominantly as a neurocutaneous disorder. Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare pulmonary manifestation of TSC. Imaging evaluation plays an important role in the assessment of patients with tuberous sclerosis complex. In newly diagnosed patients, it helps not only to confirm the diagnosis of TSC, but also helps in identifying clinically significant complications.We describe the radiological findings in lungs and other organs in a middle aged female with TSC.
