The kidney in tuberous sclerosis: manifestations and molecular genetic mechanisms

Show Summary Details

Preview

Renal involvement is common in tuberous sclerosis. Angiomyolipomas and cysts are found in ∼50 and 30% of patients respectively, and often occur together. Tuberous sclerosis also appears to be associated with a small but increased risk of renal cell carcinoma. Recent studies have begun to elucidate the molecular genetic mechanisms underlying the renal manifestations of this systemic autosomal dominant disorder.
