Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is a rare multisystemic genetic disorder which affects 1 in 6000–10,000 people worldwide. It usually affects the central nervous system and presents with multitude of symptoms such as seizures, skin abnormalities, intellectual disability, kidney disease, and behavioral problems. Psychosis has been rarely reported in patients with TSC. The Indian data on patients with TSC are sparse. We report a patient with TSC who presented with psychotic symptoms and discussed the management. Psychosis in patients with TSC is a rare association, and therefore, it should be assessed periodically while evaluating general health issues of patients with TSC.
