Abstract

We report a case of a 35-year-old man with histologically confirmed neurosarcoidosis who developed recurrent episodes of right-hemispheric dysfunction with diffuse cortical lesions of the right hemisphere on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A brain biopsy revealed granulomatous inflammatory cells in both the subarachnoid space and Virchow-Robin space, which might relate to the recurrent neurological dysfunction and MRI findings.
