Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant multisystem neurocutaneous disorder in which the majority of patients develop epilepsy (Chu-Shore et al., 2010; Jeong and Wong, 2016; Krueger, 2013). Approximately 60% of patients with TSC and epilepsy have antiepileptic drug (AED)-resistant epilepsy (Chu-Shore et al., 2010). Accurate identification of the primary epileptogenic tuber or network is essential as epilepsy surgery in patients with a well-localised seizure focus results in a good [...]
