Background. Granulomatous autoinflammatory diseases are monogenic syndromes caused by mutations in the region encoding the nucleotide-binding domain of the nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-containing 2 gene. Blau syndrome and early-onset sarcoidosis are familial and sporadic forms of the same disease and are very rare. Many organ systems may be involved; however, neurologic involvement is infrequent. We reported a case of encephalitis in a 12-year-old girl followed with a diagnosis of early-onset sarcoidosis.
