Case Summary: A 55 year old female diabetic and hypertensive was admitted due to generalized body weakness. She was diagnosed to have polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) . A case of polyarteritis acuta nodosa Article in The Journal of Pathology and Bacteriology 17(2) - June with 4 Reads How we measure 'reads'. Abstract. Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a rare vasculitis affecting middle-sized arteries. Its annual incidence in Europe is estimated to range between 0 and . first case of PAN, most forms of vascu-litis were termed periarteritis nodosa. Newly recognized types of this disease were characterized and classified ac-cording to .
Limited polyarteritis nodosa is a rare benign disease that usually responds well to systemic corticosteroid treatment. We report a case limited to calf muscles, fascia, and skin treated with local corticosteroid therapy directed to the affected areas by ultrasound guidance. A year-old Caucasian woman presented with a month history of progressive right calf pain and swelling, . the name, polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) (7). In the s, approximately cases of PAN were reported, 20 from the US and mostly from autopsies (8). They believed that any organ or combi-nation of organs may be affected at any time in the course of the disease, and the resulting clinical manifestations may be bizarre in the extreme. Introduction. Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a necrosing arthritis of the small and medium-sized arteries, with no glomerulonephritis and not associated with ANCA. 1 The organs most affected are the skin, gastrointestinal tract, kidney, peripheral nerves, heart, liver, pancreas, testicles, the nervous system and the muscles. 2 Muscular manifestations are common (51%), consisting of . Epidemiology Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a rare disease with an incidence of about cases per , population annually Sex- and age-related demographics PAN affects men more frequently than women (male-to-female ratio ). it is predominantly observed in individuals aged approximately years. 5.
This paper details the first case report of a patient with fulminant, gangrenous, ischemic colitis caused by polyarteritis nodosa which was successfully treated surgically. Ischemic colitis is a rare complication of polyarteritis nodosa. It should be suspected in patients with a past history of polyarteritis nodosa who develop abdominal pain and rectal bleeding.

Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN), is a systemic necrotizing inflammation of blood vessels (vasculitis) affecting medium-sized muscular arteries, typically involving the arteries of the kidneys and other internal organs but generally sparing the lungs' circulation. Polyarteritis nodosa may be present in infants. In polyarteritis nodosa, small aneurysms are strung like the beads of a rosary, therefore. Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a rare disease that can present at any age and has no racial or ethnic predilection. PAN affects males slightly more frequently than females ( male-to-female ratio).
