Thanks for writing in.

Tuberous sclerosis is a syndromic presentation (there are many common features seen in patients having tuberous sclerosis).
You might be one of the lucky ones having no tubers in your brain and no seizure activity.

The heart and kidneys can be checked regularly for any sudden need for further treatment.

The kidney angiolipoma is really too small and can be kept on observation for a while.

Hope your query is answered.
