About Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC)

TSC is a rare genetic condition that causes tumours to grow in any organ of the body.  It commonly affects the brain, skin, heart, lungs and kidneys. TSC can cause epilepsy, developmental delay and autism. It affects more than 2,000 people in Australia and thousands more carers, families and friends. There is no known cure, but with appropriate support most people with TSC can live fulfilling lives. To find out more about TSC, please watch this short video called “Meet Abby”

For 40 years Tuberous Sclerosis Australia (TSA) has been informing, empowering and connecting people affected by TSC through access to the best treatment options, up to date information and support. We can only continue to do so with your support.
