GEIGER, Martin Andreas; CANTADOR, Alex Aparecido  and  GUILLAUMON, Ana Terezinha. Thoracic aortic aneurysm in a patient with tuberous sclerosis. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2019, vol.18, e20160017.  Epub June 06, 2019. ISSN 1677-5449.

Tuberous sclerosis is a genetic disease with autosomal dominant transmission. Its classic presentation comprises epilepsy, mental deficiencies, and sebaceous adenomas. Aneurysms of the aorta can be detected in people with tuberous sclerosis ranging from children a few months old to young adults. We report the case of a young patient diagnosed with a saccular thoracic aortic aneurysm and tuberous sclerosis who was successfully treated using an endovascular approach.

Keywords : thoracic aortic aneurysm; tuberous sclerosis; endovascular treatment.
