They may have scattered shallow surface pits and the density is generally more firm than adjacent normal gyri. Resemblance of these altered gyri to potato tubers explains the name given to this disorder. Aside from the gyral enlargement and increased tissue density, the tuberose gyri tend to be whiter than those that are unaffected (Fig. 9). Microscopic features are striking and consist of an increase in both the number and size of neurons and astrocytes all of which are disbursed throughout the cortex in a disorganized manner (Fig.
