Abstract


Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology with a rare tendency to the nervous system. Isolated neurosarcoidosis is rare and difficult to be diagnosed clinically. A 53-year-old Jordanian male admitted to Jordan University Hospital with a history of urine retention, low back pain and feet parasthesia. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed bilateral enlargement of certain cranial nerves and meningeal masses. Magnetic resonance imaging of the whole spine revealed meningeal and lumbar nerves thickening.
