Positive hepatitis serology may be present in children with polyarteritis nodosa
, though rarely.

, PSM--pansystolic murmur.
Since he had ongoing constitutional symptoms with negative serology and cultures, a conventional mesenteric artery angiography was performed to rule out polyarteritis nodosa
Other systemic diseases include relapsing polychondritis, inflammatory bowel disease, ankylosing spondylitis, SLE, and polyarteritis nodosa
is a life threatening necrotizing vasculitis that affects medium-sized arteries, and its association with hepatitis B virus is well-documented.
In his analysis of 60 patients with vasculitis associated with malignancy, Fain and colleagues (13) found cutaneous leukocytoclastic vasculitis (LV), polyarteritis nodosa
(PAN), Churg-Strauss syndrome, microscopic polyangiitis, Wegener's granulomatosis, and Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) to be triggered by malignancy.
These include diffuse seborrheic keratoses (sign of Leser-Trelat), acanthosis nigricans (dark, velvety patches on the skin), microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, membranous nephropathy, hypercoaguability (Trousseau's syndrome), and polyarteritis nodosa
We report the case of a 65-year-old man who was diagnosed to have polyarteritis nodosa
having presented atypically with hematuria.
Cutaneus polyarteritis nodosa
is a variant of polyarteritis nodosa
(PAN), without visceral involvement and with a more favourable prognosis.
Generalized arteritis similar to polyarteritis nodosa
Headache with systemic illness (fever, stiff neck, rash) may reflect meningitis, encephalitis, lyme disease, systemic infection, or collagen vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, polyarteritis nodosa
