We describe a patient with polyarteritis nodosa presenting with a febrile cholestatic anicteric syndrome. Histological examination of the liver revealed necrotizing arteritis of small hepatic arteries associated with significant lesions of intrahepatic bile ducts of the sclerosing cholangitis type, i.e. fibrous collar around the ducts, periductal… CONTINUE READING
