Abstract

A lesion of tuberous sclerosis was observed in the parietal cortex of a 13-year old girl. Numerous giant neurons in the affected areas contained Alzheimer's neurofibrillary tangles, granulovacuolar degeneration and argentophilic globules. These findings in tuberous sclerosis, insofar as we know, are new in the literature.
