5) Nasopharyngeal angiofibromas are also hypervascular masses that can present with epistaxis, but these typically occur in teenage boys rather than pregnant girls or women.
The presence of cutaneous stigmata of TSC such as ash leaf spots (hypomelanocytic macules) and facial angiofibromas should prompt a strong suspicion of the disease.
Acral and subungual angiofibromas, which are sometimes included within the spectrum of ADF, are present with occasional dilated vessels within fibrotic dermis containing plump fibroblasts.
For example, a recent case report [13] in the SAMJ was clearly a case of an adolescent with TSC, facial angiofibromas and a presumed fat-poor angiomyolipoma (a non-cancerous tumour that should be treated with an mTOR inhibitor).
An absence of the typical dermatological signs of TS hypomelanotic macules or ash leaf spots (found in up to 90% of patients with TS), confetti lesions, poliosis, facial angiofibromas or adenoma sebaceum, shagreen patches and ungual fibromas (14)--alerted the clinician to the possibility that the patient did not suffer from TS.

Topical beta-blockers could be an alternative to rapamycin for the treatment of angiofibromas after traditional destructive procedures such as ablative laser resurfacing, according to a case study published in Pediatrics.
The facial lesions were identified as angiofibromas, thus prompting the diagnosis of TSC.
Besides, its clinical features may include adrenocortical tumour, carcinoids of foregut origin (bronchial, thymic, gastric and duodenal), and cutaneous tumours as Lipoma, angiofibromas and collagenomas.
Physical examination found forehead fibrous plaque, facial angiofibromas [Figure 1]a, hypopigmented macules, and shagreen patches on his back.
Cellular angiofibromas are consistently positive for vimentin with variable expression of CD34 and desmin, and negative for smooth muscle actin (SMA) and S-100 (2, 6).
El termino Esclerosis Tuberosa fue acunado en 1880 por Bourneville y, en 1908, Vogt describe la triada clasica que se caracteriza por deficiencia mental, crisis epilepticas y angiofibromas faciales.
