VPPRN Patient-Powered Research

Polyarteritis Nodosa (PAN)

Compared to patients with other forms of vasculitis, patients with polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) reported similar scores/ratings for flares, fatigue, and reporting of active vasculitis at the July 2023 check-in.  We do, however, see differences in the scores for symptoms of vasculitis and pain.

If you have concerns about your health scores, please discuss with your rheumatologist or primary care provider.
