Polyarteritis nodosa in pregnancy: A case report and brief literature review

Academic Article


  • Patients who develop polyarteritis nodosa in pregnancy generally have a grim prognosis. A young nulliparous woman developed the disease and attained remission before becoming pregnant. Although she developed a recurrence, both mother and infant did well. It appears that if a patient becomes pregnant while in remission the chance of a successful pregnancy outcome is reasonable. © 1989, Mosby. All rights reserved.
