Tuberous sclerosis is a pathological condition in which small, benign tumours similar to nodules appear in the most diverse tissues of the human body. The relationship between disease and mental disorders has previously been poorly understood.

The authors collected data from 2,216 people of all ages who applied to one of the 170 specialised medical institutions in any of the 31 participating countries. It turned out that psychiatric disorders are widespread in patients with tuberous sclerosis, and more than a half of them have cognitive disorders.
