with bilateral ureteric involvement.
Since he had ongoing constitutional symptoms with negative serology and cultures, a conventional mesenteric artery angiography was performed to rule out polyarteritis nodosa.
Presentation and outcome of gastrointestinal involvement in systemic necrotizing vasculitides: analysis of 62 patients with polyarteritis nodosa, microscopic polyangiitis, Wegener granulomatosis, Churg-Strauss syndrome, or rheumatoid arthritis-associated vasculitis.
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.
Key words: Cutaneus polyarteritis nodosa, differential diagnosis, systemic corticosteroids
