Getting to the bottom of why things happen. Dermatological assessment of patients with tuberous sclerosis complex
What is the tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC)? Does it require expensive and advanced diagnostic methods or not necessarily?
Learn of the new exciting project conducted by an ambitious 6th year medical student and doctoral researcher Ewa Maria Sokolewicz, attempting to develop an early method of TSC’s recognition based solely on dermatological criteria. First instance of its application indicated definite TSC diagnosis in 89% of the participating patients.
Since early TSC recognition allows for earlier diagnosis of other serious diseases, the results as high as the above could truly entail a big change for the patients.
See how true passion for science and superb mentorship paves the way for maybe yet another scientific breakthrough.
