UPDATE -- Oct. 1 Jack McGlone wrote on his blog Monday that his brother Bill has been diagnosed with neurosarcoidosis , a rare condition causing inflammation in the brain, spinal cord and other areas of the nervous system. No exact cause is known for sarcoidosis, including the neurological variety that Bill McGlone has. Generally, doctors think neurosarcoidosis might have a genetic link, according to MedLine Plus , and they also suspect that bacterial or viral infections, or contact with certain types of chemicals or dust, could trigger it.
