The typical imaging pattern of TS (on CT and MR) includes: multiple subependymal nodules; multiple cortical hamartomas (tubers); white matter abnormalities and, sometimes, intraventricular tumors consistent with giant cell astrocytomas. We report a case of TS in a 2 years old child with drug- resistant epilepsy and a single left frontal lesion, with calcific components, strudied with CT and MR. On November 97 the patient was admitted at the Epilepsy Surgical Center of Niguarda Hospital in Milan, several video- EEG registration localized the epileptogenic focus in the left fronto- central region and, on this basis, a surgical treatment of lesionectomy plus left frontal cortectomy was performed. The final diagnosis on surgical specimen was of cortical tuber A t present time, even though a 4 months follow-up is not significant, the patient is seizure free.
