Abstract

Tuberosclerosis (TS) is an autosomal dominant neuro­cutaneous disease characterized with the triad of mental retardation, epilepsy and adenoma sebaceum. The most common affected organs are skin, brain, heart, eyes and kidneys whereas all organs can be involved. A 40-year-old male patient admitted to our clinic with a complaint of acrochordons in his neck and diagnosed with tuberos­clerosis. The dermatologic signs of this rare disease are presented and discussed with recent literature.
