Tuberous sclerosis is a multisystem disorder characterised by the formation of hamartomas in various parts of the body. We present a patient who presented with facial angiofibromas (adenoma sebaceum), shagreen patches, and epileptic seizures. Oral papules showed histological features of angiofibroma, which was peculiar to this case.
