Tuberous sclerosis complex occurs in 1 of 6000 to 10,000 individuals, with two thirds of cases being sporadic (Osborne et al 1991). A study in Sweden showed a peak prevalence of 1 in 6800 for individuals between 11 and 15 years of age, and 1 in 12,900 for all individuals younger than 20 years of age.
