Abstract

We present a case of spinal cord sarcoidosis with a unique magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) finding. MRI of the cervical spine revealed an unusual lesion of low signal intensity on T2-weighted image at the core of the lesion surrounded by high signal intensity. T1-weighted gadolinium enhanced image showed a high signal at the core lesion. Low signal intensity on T2-weighted image in the case was suggested to be due to hemosiderin deposition. Steroid therapy dramatically improved clinical symptoms with a marked reduction of peripheral T2 high intensity area and the core lesion size detected by gadolinium enhancement.
