Abstract

We present a 47-year-old man with recurrent intramedullary sarcoidosis. This condition, without any other manifestations of the disease, is rare, with less than 20 reports in the literature. Further, to our knowledge our presentation is the only reported case of intramedullary sarcoidosis recurring in a separate, distant region of the cord after a period of treatment with steroids, to which the patient had initially responded.
