Abstract

Objective: To describe a patient with an acute fulminant delirium and eventual spinal fluid block secondary to sarcoid meningitis. Design: Case report. Setting: Hospital and Neurology Clinic. Patient: A previously healthy, 24-year-old man. Interventions: Antimicrobials, corticosteroids, lumbar puncture, myelography, and lymph node biopsy. Main Outcome Measures: Cerebrospinal fluid, clinical status. Results: The patient improved after treatment with corticosteroids. Conclusion: Sarcoid meningitis may present with delirium and spinal block.
