Tuberous sclerosis is a rare multisystem neurocutaneous genetic disorder primarily presented with seizures, mental retardation and hamartomas involving multiple systems. Behavioural and psychiatric manifestation of the illness in form of cognitive disabilities, autistic spectrum disorder, ADHD, learning disabilities etc. are present in a large number of cases. We present a case of tuberous sclerosis who developed psychosis after his skin lesions were misinterpreted as leprosy lesions and he received anti-leprotic medication in primary care setting. Risperidone and sodium valproate were used to successfully manage his behavioural symptoms and seizures.
