Neurosarcoidosis is a type of inflammation that may affect many different parts of the body, including the optic nerves, brain or spinal cord. It may also affect the meninges, or coverings of the brain and spinal cord. The diagnosis of neurosarcoidosis is sometimes challenging, and may require a detailed search for evidence of inflammation elsewhere in the body to confirm the diagnosis.
