Neurosarcoidosis, rare in patients with sarcoidosis, may present with protean manifestations according to the regions of involvement from peripheral nerves to the central nervous system. Cavernous sinus is rarely involved by sarcoidosis, and it can result in different cavernous sinus syndromes based mainly on the involvement of the trigeminal nerve. We report a 54-year-old man with pulmonary sarcoidosis and cavernous sinus syndrome and review the clinical course, laboratory findings, and…

Cavernous sinus syndrome due to neurosarcoidosis in adolescence: a diagnosis not to be missed
TLDR
A rare case of unilateral CSS is described as the presenting sign of neurosarcoidosis in adolescence of a 16-year-old female referred to the authors' neuro-ophthalmological outpatient service for right ptosis, non-reacting midriasis, pain during eye movements, cephalalgia, and diplopia.
A Rare Case of Steroid-Resistant Neurosarcoidosis of the Cavernous Sinus With Optic Neuropathy: A Case Report
TLDR
Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease that presents with nervous system involvement in 5-10% of cases and there are no randomized controlled trials for the disease.
Isolated Neurohypophysial Sarcoidosis Involving the Cavernous Sinus Mimicking a Malignant Tumor
TLDR
A prompt histological diagnosis of an invasive isolated neurohypophysial mass lesion involving the bilateral cavernous sinus, which is similar to a malignant tumor, is essential for selecting the appropriate therapy.
Neurosarcoidosis presenting as trigeminal nevralgia: a case report and review of the literature.
TLDR
This case illustrates that when a patient with sarcoidosis presents with neurological symptoms, neurosarcoid should be considered, and recognizing and correctly diagnosing neurosARcoid leads to proper treatment and decreased morbidity in patients.
Isolated Central Nervous System Vasculitis as a Manifestation of Neurosarcoidosis.
Neuro-Ophthalmic Manifestations of Sarcoidosis
TLDR
Patients with neurosarcoidosis may present initially with a neuro-ophthalmic manifestation, and this presentation may be more common in older patients, particularly in white patients.
Cerebrovascular Manifestations of Neurosarcoidosis: An Underrecognized Aspect of the Imaging Spectrum
TLDR
The authors present a review of various cerebrovascular manifestations of neurosarcoidosis, along with a brief synopsis of the existing literature.
A rare case of extensive leptomeningitis in neurosarcoidosis
TLDR
An unusual case of neurosarcoidosis who presented with combination of right-sided vision loss and complete ophthalmoplegia with extensive leptomeningitis was reported who was suffering from resistant diabetes which leads to therapeutic problems.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Neurosarcoidosis
TLDR
The range of possible patterns of involvement in neurosarcoidosis are depicted and discussed, including intracranial and spine leptomeningeal involvement, cortical and cerebral white matter lesions, corpus callosum involvement, sellar and suprasellar involvement, and periventricular involvement.

TLDR
Neurosarcoidosis can be ‘staged’ with the use of neurodiagnostic testing and diagnosed with varying degrees of certainty and treatment should be approached within the context of the anticipated clinical course of the patient, avoidance of adverse drug effects, and from the perspective of the comprehensive management of a chronic disease.
