The ­authors ­report the ­case of a 31-­year-old man, who pre­sent­ed an hemor­rhag­ic ­onset of a cere­bral-iso­lat­ed sarcoidosis, to ­date nev­er ­described in the lit­er­a­ture. Unusual clin­i­cal man­i­fes­ta­tion, neu­ro­ra­dio­log­i­cal ­study and ­direct his­to­log­i­cal con­fir­ma­tion are pre­sent­ed. Moreover, Gallium-67 Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (Ga- 67 ­SPECT) con­tri­bu­tion is indi­cat­ed to com­plete the eval­u­a­tion of ­patients ­with cere­bral inflam­ma­to­ry ­lesions, ­such as neurosarcoidosis, and in cas­es of equiv­ocal neu­ro­ra­dio­log­i­cal imag­ing, to eval­u­ate ­uptake activ­ity of the inflam­ma­to­ry tis­sue. The ­patient did ­well and report­ed no fur­ther pro­gres­sion of his dis­ease dur­ing 7 ­months of fol­low-up.
