It can cause tumors in the skin, kidneys, brain, heart, eyes, lungs, teeth as well as other organ systems.[/cs_text][cs_text class=”mtm”]In most individuals, the disease affects only some of these organs. The severity of TSC can range from mild skin abnormalities to, in severe cases, mental retardation or renal failure. Many TSC manifestations also develop later in life. Most individuals who are mildly affected by TSC lead active and productive lives, but it is important to realise that TSC is a life-long companion and individuals should receive continuous follow-up care.[/cs_text][/cs_element_column][/cs_element_row][cs_element_row _id=”41″][cs_element_column _id=”42″][cs_text _order=”0″ class=”ptl”]Due to better testing methods, estimates of TSC frequency have risen dramatically in recent years as individuals with less-severe manifestations of TSC are identified. Population-based studies suggest a prevalence of 1 in 9,407 individuals, but recent estimates place the prevalence to be 1 in 6,000 live births. It is estimated that approximately 50,000 Americans and 1 million individuals worldwide have TSC.[/cs_text][/cs_element_column][/cs_element_row][/cs_element_section][cs_element_section _id=”49″][cs_element_row _id=”50″][cs_element_column _id=”51″][x_button type=”real” shape=”rounded” size=”x-large” block=”false” circle=”false” icon_only=”false” href=”/donate” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=”” class=”mtl mbl”]Donate[x_icon type=”eur” class=”mvn mls mrn”][/x_button][cs_text class=”mbl”]
