A 30-year-old mechanical engineer suffering multiple asymtomatic papules on his face, especially around the nose was diagnosed as tuberous sclerosis. He had also Shagreen patches on his lumbosacral region, periungual fibromas on his toes. He had no history of seizure although there were small periventricular calcifications on cranial CT. We could not find any other features of tuberous sclerosis. The case was presented because of the patient's normal mental status and literature on this issue was reviewed.
