Experiments on rats indicate that intravenous injection of various particulate or macromolecular substances (egg yolk, colloidal carbon, ferric oxide saccharate) produce rather regularly, a very intense acute periarteritis nodosa. This lesion is strictly limited to that portion of the hepatic artery distad from the origin of the gastroduodenal artery. The extrahepatic branches in the hilus region are most severely involved but, occasionally, intrahepatic smaller branches are also affected. The possible pathogenesis of this lesion is briefly discussed.

Since symptoms are diverse and no serologic test is specific for polyarteritis nodosa, the diagnosis is difficult and...
