Keywords:Lymphadenopathy, Hyponatremia, Sarcoidosis, Inappropriate ADH Syndrome
We report a case of 60 year old male, who presented with acute change in mental status characterized by lethargy and decreased level of consciousness since one day. Sarcoidosis is a granulomatous disorder of unknown etiology which involves multiple systems. The central nervous system is affected in only 5-15% of patients with sarcoidosis. Neurosarcoidosis is a rare disorder with variable clinical course and prognosis. Treatment consists mainly of high-dose corticosteroids, which usually have to be taken long-term.
