Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a biopsy-proven case of sarcoidosis limited to the spinal cord and responsive to treatment with oral corticosteroids. Involvement of the spinal cord by systemic sarcoidosis is uncommon and is associated with several unusual pathological and radiological characteristics that may contribute to its misdiagnosis and subsequent mismanagement. The importance of these unusual characteristics is greatly amplified in solitary spinal cord sarcoidosis because there are no systemic findings to suggest a sarcoid etiology.
