Periarteritis nodosa is a disseminated but focal inflammatory disease of the smaller arteries, of unknown origin. It is almost invariably fatal. The true incidence of the disease is unknown since there can be no proof of the diagnosis except by histologic examination of tissues obtained by biopsy or at autopsy. It occurs with equal frequency in both sexes and is seen in all ages. The literature contains reports of approximately 300 cases, the great majority of which have been diagnosed post mortem. The increasing number of reports dealing with the subject in recent years indicates better recognition of the disease
