Iris and fundus pigmentary changes in tuberous sclerosis

N. J. Lucchese, Morton F Goldberg

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Tuberous sclerosis is a rare, dominantly inherited phakomatosis that is characterized by epilepsy, mental deficiency, and adenoma sebaceum. Retinal hamartomas are typical ocular findings. The reported incidence of such lesions varies from about 4 to 53%. Although iris depigmentation is known to occur in tuberous sclerosis, this is, to our knowledge, the first report of extensive fundus pigmentary changes in a patient with this disease.
