Adenoma sebaceum is a misnamed cutaneous disorder consisting of angiofibromas that begin in childhood (generally present between 2–5 years of age) and appear clinically as red papules on the face[1]:195 mostly thought to be acne not responding to treatment. Adenoma sebaceum may at times be associated with tuberous sclerosis.[2] Gradually the papules become more prominent with time and persist throughout life.[3]
