Tuberous sclerosis complicated (TSC) is an autosomal dominant neurocutaneous illness affecting roughly 1 in six,000 individuals, and represents a single of the most typical genetic causes of epilepsy. Epilepsy impacts 90% of the sufferers and seems in the very first two years of life in the majority of them. Early onset of epilepsy in the very first 12 months of life is linked with higher danger of cognitive decline and neuropsychiatric complications like autism. Prenatal or early infantile diagnosis of TSC, ahead of the onset of epilepsy, supplies a distinctive chance to monitor EEG ahead of the onset of clinical seizures, therefore enabling early intervention in the course of action of epileptogenesis. In this critique, we go over the present status of information on epileptogenesis in TSC, and present suggestions of American and European specialists in the field of epilepsy.
