Show Summary Details

Preview

Sarcoidosis is a multi-systemic, inflammatory, granulomatous disorder of unknown etiology, characterized pathologically by the presence of noncaseating granulomas and multinucleated giant cells. Involvement of the nervous system is estimated in 5% of patients with systemic sarcoidosis, and rarely occurs as an isolated phenomenon. In this chapter, we review the most common peripheral and central presentations of neurosarcoidosis.
