Hi Mr Pawan,

Thank you for posting your query.

Tuberous sclerosis (TS) is a geentic disease.

The main problems are developmental delay, learning disability and seizuers.

Seizures can be well controlled with anti-epileptic drugs, such as sodium valproate.

If tubers are large in size, surgery may sometimes be required.

Please consult a neurologist for advice.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
