Tuberous Sclerosis


This case shows typical findings in a patient with Tuberous Sclerosis. Note cortical and subcortical tubers on transversal T2 and coronal FLAIR as well as contrast enhancing Giant Cell Astrocytoma in the left foramen Monroe region.


Also note subependymal nodules that are both calcified (see CT and T2 GRE) and showing contrast enhancement (arrowheads). Above findings can present with variable expression in different patients.
