This excellent paper, which is well worth reading in its entirety, is written by an eminent team of TSC expert health professionals in the UK. It discusses the need to improve TSC management to ensure people with TSC have early access to appropriate treatment and preventive measures—both to minimise the long-term effects of the condition, where possible, and to support individuals and their families. Given the range of organ systems affected by TSC, its management and treatment requires coordination across a number of medical specialties over a person’s lifetime. The authors propose a comprehensive, holistic model of care to manage a range of manifestations which require management from a wide range of specialties.
