Small fibre neuropathy in sarcoidosis
Keywords:Sarcoidosis, Neuropathy, Peripheral Nerves
Sarcoidosis is characterized by multisystem granulomatous formation particularly in the chest. In this case report, we present an uncommon case highlighting significant peripheral nerve involvement, a phenomenon that is not well recognized in sarcoidosis. The patient presented with severe incapacitating pain. Sarcoidosis as being the underlying cause was only established after extensive investigations. This case highlights the importance of recognizing small fibre peripheral polyneuropathy as a possible presentation of sarcoidosis. This could help to direct appropriate medical intervention.
