Polyarteritis nodosa, or periarteritis nodosa as it is frequently designated, is a widespread disease of arteries and less commonly of veins which may occur in any or all of the body structures and results in altered physiology of those organs involved. The clinical manifestations are protean. It is somewhat more common in males in the fourth and fifth decades but is a relatively rare illness and only 350 cases were reported through 1942. Polyarteritis nodosa was first described by Kussmaul and Maier in 1866. However, it has only recently become the object of wide interest and investigation.
