Neurosarcoidosis (NS) affects 5-10% of sarcoidosis patients and can involve any part of the nervous system. The prognosis can be serious and relapse is common. The diagnostic work-up is difficult with many differential diagnoses in inflammatory, infective and malignant neurological diseases. There is no specific marker for NS. Recently proposed diagnostic criteria for NS emphasise that biopsy plays an important role. Infliximab appears to be effective when other treatments are inadequate. The review summarises the clinical features, imaging and laboratory findings, treatment and prognosis of NS.
