Strokes in tuberous sclerosis: are rhabdomyomas a cause?

Author information

Department of Neurology, Mayo Medical School, Rochester, MN 55905.


Abnormalities of the cerebral arteries and the aorta are more common in young patients with tuberous sclerosis than in the rest of the population. Strokes have been reported but there is no confirmation that embolization of cerebral arteries by fragments of cardiac rhabdomyoma plays a role in the higher incidence of strokes in these patients.
