Resumo: A esclerose tuberosa é uma doença genética de transmissão autossômica dominante. Caracteriza-se, na sua apresentação clássica, por epilepsia, deficiência mental e adenomas sebáceos. Aneurismas de aorta podem acometer desde crianças com poucos meses de vida até adultos jovens portadores de esclerose tuberosa. Apresentamos o caso de uma paciente jovem com diagnóstico de aneurisma sacular de aorta torácica e esclerose tuberosa tratada com sucesso por via endovascular.

Abstract: Tuberous sclerosis is a genetic disease with autosomal dominant transmission. Its classic presentation comprises epilepsy, mental deficiencies, and sebaceous adenomas. Aneurysms of the aorta can be detected in people with tuberous sclerosis ranging from children a few months old to young adults. We report the case of a young patient diagnosed with a saccular thoracic aortic aneurysm and tuberous sclerosis who was successfully treated using an endovascular approach.
