A 45 year-old Japanese woman developed numbness and tingling of both hands and feet. Electrophysiological examination revealed sensorimotor polyneuropathy. She was diagnosed as suffering from sarcoidosis on the basis of the pathological findings from dermal biopsy. Steroid therapy effectively improved the clinical symptoms. Although sarcoid neuropathy is rare, this case suggests sensorimotor polyneuropathy is an important symptom of sarcoidosis and can represent the initial clinical manifestation of the disease.
