Core Tip We present the case of a patient with a history of primary intestinal lymphangiectasia (PIL). The patient was also diagnosed with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Only two cases of PIL associated with TSC had been reported at the time of this writing, and this report presents the third case. It has been reported in previous cases that PIL patients can exhibit hypomelanotic macules or enamel hypoplasia, which are the clinical features of TSC. Through a review of the literature, it can be seen that changes in the molecular gene level of TSC can lead to lymphatic vessels abnormalities. These findings suggest that PIL may be a manifestation of TSC in some cases.
