Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.3, pp.109-112. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082011000300003.

Tuberous sclerosis, also known as tuberous sclerosis complex, is an autosomal dominant, multisystemic, neurocutaneous disease characterized by a wide range of hamartomatous lesions involving the skin, brain, kidneys, heart, etc. In most cases, it is diagnosed in childhood. Diagnosis in adult patients is usually made by renal failure and lung or dermatologic alterations. We report the case of a 57-year-old female patient with mental retardation and flank pain. A literature review on imaging manifestations of this rare disease is also provided.

Palabras clave : Hamartoma; Neurocutaneous syndrome; Tuberous sclerosis.
