This case report is designed to familiarize military physicians with findings common in tuberous sclerosis patients with epilepsy. Tuberous sclerosis is an inherited multi-system disorder that typically causes benign hamartomas to develop in vital organs. When this occurs in the brain, the hamartomas may lead to neurological disorders such as epilepsy. TS has an incidence of approximately 1 in 6000 live births. Although diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis is often made clinically, radiographic images such as those provided by magnetic resonance imaging are paramount in determining the most effective management and treatment of tuberous sclerosis.
