Cerebral sarcoidosis presenting as supranuclear gaze palsy with hypokinetic rigid syndrome



A 31-year-old man with histologically documented pulmonary sarcoidosis developed a severe hypokinetic rigid syndrome with a supranuclear gaze palsy following recurrent lymphocytic meningitis and occlusive hydrocephalus. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed multiple hyperintense foci in the CNS, not detectable by computed tomography (CT). Long-term steroid therapy led to clinical complete remission.
