• A rarely observed pattern of cerebellar calcification was noted in the skull roentgenograms of a child with tuberous sclerosis in the absence of cerebellar dysfunction. The computerized tomographic brain scan was useful in defining the extent of the cerebellar lesion and in detecting two additional foci of calcification that were not detected by standard roentgenographic methods.
