Polyarteritis nodosa treated with cortisone

  • R. H. Micks
Clinical Notes


A case of polyarteritis nodosa successfully treated by cortisone is described. At the date of writing there has been a sustained remission lasting six months since the cessation of cortisone therapy. The cause of the polyarteritis was probably prolonged administration of sulphafurazole. The diagnosis was based on the clinical findings, and a biopsy was not performed.
