Am J Dis Child. 1985;139(9):920-922. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1985.02140110074033

• We describe a child who developed chronic cutaneous periarteritis nodosa at 5 years of age and whom we have observed over a five-year period. Although intermittent oral corticosteroids have been required to control symptoms, she has not demonstrated involvement of any organ other than the skin.
