In brief: Many
Polyarteritis nodosa is a serious autoimmune disease of mostly unknown origin.
It primarily involves the arteries and causes inflammation within the blood vessel. This, in turn, causes swelling inside the vessel and subsequently blockage of blood flow. Depending on the site of blockage, symptoms can be abdominal pain, testicular pain, leg pain and leg ulcers, and kidney failure. Fever is common.
