Tuberous Sclerosis
Case from German physician Richard Kothe, 1903
Tuberous sclerosis is not to be confused with tuberculosis. It’s an autosomal dominant, multi-system disorder, but almost 2/3 of cases are sporadic mutations. The periungual fibromas illustrated here are one of the key diagnostic criteria for the Tuberous Sclerosis Complex.
