A new open access paper in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology investigates fibrous cephalic plaques (FCPs) in individuals with TSC. The authors found that though clinicians typically look for FCPs on the forehead, roughly 60% of FCPs are found on the neck, scalp, or elsewhere on the face. Clinicians who find FCPs should recognize them as a potential sign of TSC and evaluate the patients further.
Do you use Mendeley to organize your citations? We have created a Mendeley group for all research articles on tuberous sclerosis complex and a smaller group for articles supported by TS Alliance funding. Please join our groups and contribute to the project by adding citations and documents. This will help us create a resource for researchers in the field and show our donors the impact of TS Alliance research funding.
