Conjunctival Lesions in Periarteritis Nodosa: A Clinical and Immunopathologic Study

Conjunctival Lesions in Periarteritis Nodosa: A Clinical and Immunopathologic Study Abstract • Periarteritis nodosa is a disease with protean manifestations, yet there are few reports of ocular involvement. We treated a patient who was seen with conjunctival and anterior uveal involvement. The clinical histopathologic and immunopathologic characteristics are described. Immunopathologic studies are a useful adjunct in confirming the nature of this disorder. References 1. Stillerman ML: Ocular manifestations of diffuse collagen disease .

Abstract

Abstract • Periarteritis nodosa is a disease with protean manifestations, yet there are few reports of ocular involvement. We treated a patient who was seen with conjunctival and anterior uveal involvement. The clinical histopathologic and immunopathologic characteristics are described. Immunopathologic studies are a useful adjunct in confirming the nature of this disorder. References 1. Stillerman ML: Ocular manifestations of diffuse collagen disease .
