Adenoma sebaceum is one of the diagnostic features of tuberous sclerosis. Histologically, they are angiofibromas that occur over the central part of the face and hence, cause a major cosmetic disfigurement. Different forms of ablative treatments including laser ablation have been used for the treatment of this condition. Laser treatment is expensive and any form of treatment for adenoma sebaceum is not a one-time procedure but is a recurring process as the condition is genetic in aetiology. It is therefore appropriate to use a cheap and easily available modality, particularly in the Indian scenario. We hereby report a case of tuberous sclerosis in whom we ablated the lesions by radiofrequency technique with acceptable results.
