Tuberous sclerosis diagnostic criteria

  • definitive TS complex: either 2 major features or 1 major and 2 minor
  • probable TS complex: 1 major and 1 minor
  • possible TS complex: either 1 major or ≥2 minor
Major features
Minor features
  • dental pits: multiple and randomly distributed
  • rectal polyps: hamartomatous
  • bone cysts
  • cerebral white matter migration lines
  • gingival fibromas
  • non renal hamartoma
  • retinal achromic patch
  • 'confetti' skin lesions
