Periarteritis nodosa is an obliterative, inflammatory, vascular disease involving the small arteries and arterioles. Periarteritis nodosa is an inadequate descriptive term since all coats of the vessel are involved, and since nodules may or may not be present. Polyarteritis is a more exact name. Polyarteritis is a rare condition, 350 cases having been reported up to 1942.41 Males are involved more frequently than females, in contrast to acute disseminated lupus erythematosus. It may occur at any age, having been reported from ages 1 to 79. Fifty per cent of the patients are in the fourth and fifth decades.8 Reports of
