Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic

Mayo's Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic — composed of a neurologist, a medical geneticist, certified genetic counselors, a dermatologist and a nephrologist — sees people with symptoms that are suggestive of tuberous sclerosis (TS).

TS is a complex genetic disorder characterized by noncancerous (benign) tumors in many parts of the body, including the skin, brain, kidney and other organs. About half the patients with TS have learning disabilities or developmental delays.

Our experienced team in Mayo's Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic uses a multispecialty personalized approach to evaluate, diagnose and treat children and adults with this rare disorder.
