Answer

Other tests used in the assessment of patients with TSC include the following:

  • Electroencephalography: Should be performed in patients with TSC in whom seizures are suspected; follow-up electroencephalography is performed as clinically indicated

  • Electrocardiography: Baseline electrocardiography is recommended for all patients newly diagnosed with TSC, since cardiac arrhythmias, although rare, may have sudden death as their presenting symptom
