Angiofibromas are benign tumors comprised of fibrous tissue and blood vessels. They can occur in people with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). These tumors appear mostly on the nose and cheeks, but they can also appear on the forehead, chin, and eyelids. The picture shows an angiofibroma on the forehead of an adult male patient with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC).
