Abstract

Despite the propensity of sarcoid granulomas to be clustered around blood vessels, transient ischemic attacks and strokes are rare. A 43-year-old man had recurrent transient dysarthria and right hemiparesis; a biopsy specimen showed neurosarcoidosis. There was complete resolution of both symptomatology and the subdural sarcoid mass lesion with the administration of corticosteroid therapy.
