Abstract: 
Purpose: To report the clinical, paraclinical and histopathologic features of eyelid mass lesions in a patient with tuberous sclerosis.
Case report: A 14 year old boy with a slowly progressive right upper lid mass and history of seizures, mental retardation and multiple skin lesions on the face and body was referred to Labbafinejad Medical Center. Cortical tubers and subepandimal nodules were reported in neuroimaging and fibroadenoma with sebaceous hyperplasia were observed on histopathologic assessment. A diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis was made based on multiple major signs and the patient was referred to other subspecialities for comprehensive medical care.
Conclusion: The ophthalmologist may be the first specialist to diagnose tuberous sclerosis because of associated ocular signs. Attention to systemic signs is necessary to establish a diagnosis.
