Abstract

We studied electrodiagnostic features in patients with sarcoidosis. Ten subjects (age: 54.0 ± 5.2 years, female/male: 8/2) were included. Data of conventional nerve conduction study (NCS) and needle electromyogram (EMG) were collected and analyzed. Our study showed electrodiagnostic evidence of large fiber involvement manifested as mononeuropathy and mononeuropathy multiplex in the majority (90%) of our patients, of which a small proportion (20%) of patients with secondary distally minimal active denervation, and normal electrodiagnostic findings were seen in only 10% of our patients. Findings of absence of active denervation in the majority of our patients with sarcoidosis may suggest a favorable outcome with appropriate treatments.
