    Ocular presentation of polyarteritis nodosa. Clinical course and management with steroid and cytotoxic therapy.
    Ophthalmology 1993 Dec;100(12):1775-81
    Department of Ophthalmology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School, Boston 02114.
    Background: Polyarteritis nodosa is a necrotizing vasculitis affecting medium and small-sized arteries throughout the body, including ocular tissues. Untreated polyarteritis nodosa carries a very poor prognosis. Treatment with steroids increases the 5-year survival to 48%, whereas addition of cytotoxic immunosuppressive treatment improves the outcome dramatically. Read More
    Diplopia and myalgia: potential heralding symptoms of polyarteritis nodosa.
    Am J Clin Dermatol 2007 ;8(3):175-8
    Department of Dermatology and Allergology, Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena, Jena, Germany.
    Protean clinical manifestations of polyarteritis nodosa are described. Hence, a sequential multidisciplinary diagnostic approach, including thorough dermatologic examination and histologic verification in particular, are warranted in patients suspected of having this condition. The lack of both pathognomonic visceral and/or cutaneous features and specific serologic tests for identifying polyarteritis nodosa explains why making the diagnosis is often delayed. Read More
    Hepatitis B-associated polyarteritis nodosa in Alaskan Eskimos: clinical and epidemiologic features and long-term follow-up.
    Hepatology 1989 Jan;9(1):97-101
    Alaska Native Medical Center, Indian Health Service, Anchorage 99510.
    We analyzed the demographic, clinical, laboratory and histologic features of 13 patients who were diagnosed as having polyarteritis nodosa associated with hepatitis B virus infection over a 12-year period, 1974 to 1985. All 13 patients were Yupik Eskimos and resided in southwest Alaska, an area hyperendemic for hepatitis B virus infection. The annual incidence of hepatitis B virus-associated polyarteritis nodosa for this population is 7. Read More

    Jpn J Ophthalmol 2000 Mar-Apr;44(2):151-3

    Observations: The patient's ocular symptoms did not respond well to either topical betamethasone eye drops or low-dose oral prednisone. Read More
