Abstract

We report cardiac MRI findings in a 38-year-old female Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) patient with regressed rhabdomyomas. Presence of myocardial fatty foci are associated with multiorgan involvement, although they are not a part of the current TSC diagnostic criteria. Presence of abnormal first pass perfusion and late Gadolinium enhancement in TSC patients should be carefully interpreted to avoid misdiagnosis.
