Abstract

Five cases of sarcoid presenting as an intracranial tumor are reported. In one instance, the lesion presented as a tumor in the cerebellopontine angle, a site not previously reported for the initial presentation of sarcoid isolated to the central nervous system. The role of computerized tomography, surgery, and steroid therapy is discussed. In the absence of pulmonary involvement, serum angiotensin-converting enzyme levels do not appear to be helpful in predicting steroid response.
