Tuberous sclerosis is a widespread aberration that begins during embryonic life and may involve all germ layers. Its classic clinical triad consists of epileptic seizures, mental retardation, and skin lesions. Neurofibromatosis, previously characterized by the classic clinical triad of cutaneous lesions, mental deficiency, and skeletal deformities, has now been reclassified into several subtypes. Fibrous dysplasia is a disorder of unknown cause in which the skeleton is a prominent target tissue. A variety of endocrine abnormalities, including McCune-Albright syndrome, may accompany the osseous abnormalities.
The candidate will learn the mechanics of putting together an electronic poster presentation in lecture type format.
This will be an official peer-reviewed publication.
The publication will be a favorable addition to the candidate's CV.
The candidate will be the first author, and I am the second author.
A candidate is not limited to completing one project. He/she can do as many as they like! (There are always topics to teach about)
The candidate, myself, King's College Hospital Department of Radiology and King's College all benefit from this publication.
