COSTA, Izaias Pereira da; ANDRADE, Fábio Augusto Moron de  and  HORIMOTO, Alex Magno Coelho. Association between polyarteritis nodosa and antiphospholipid syndrome: case report and literature review. Rev. Bras. Reumatol. [online]. 2006, vol.46, n.4, pp.298-303. ISSN 0482-5004.

We describe here the case of a 37 years old man with polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) associated to antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), that developed intense endothelial dysfunction, several aneurisms and arterial occlusions, including pseudo-aneurism of the gastric-duodenal artery. We performed a literature review this rare association between PAN and APS.

Keywords : polyarteritis nodosa; antiphospholipid syndrome; endothelial dysfunction; aneurisms.
