Sarcoid uveitis in a patient with multiple neurological lesi
Neurosarcoidosis is a rare complication, and cranial neuropathy is the most frequent manifestation of this disease. The present report discusses the case of a patient with sarcoid uveitis and multiple neurological findings.

Published in Journal of Medical Case Reports, the authors describe the case of a 56-year-old Japanese woman with granulomatous pan-uveitis who was later diagnosed as having sarcoidosis by skin and transbronchial lung biopsies.

She presented right-sided Bell’s palsy and was treated with orally administered prednisolone. However, while prednisolone was tapered, she developed facial (VII) and vagus (X) nerve palsies, followed by brain parenchyma lesions, which were not associated with any additional neurological symptoms. Furthermore, she exhibited increased intraocular pressure in her right eye, and she underwent trabeculectomy.

Learning Points:-
- According to the literature, patients with multiple cranial nerve palsies associated with sarcoidosis respond well to orally administered steroid therapy.

- However, the present case findings suggest that careful follow-up is necessary for patients with neurosarcoidosis due to potential aggravation of neuropathy.
