Abstract

Polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) is a rare systemic necrotising medium vessel vasculitis. The hallmark of this condition is aneurysms which are seen in visceral arteries. Aneurysms of extracranial neck and head vessels are rare. We describe a case of PAN who had such aneurysms together with characteristic aneurysms in the mesenteric circulation.
