Figure 1: Polyarteritis nodosa. A 42-year-old male patient had hepatitis B virus infection for more than 20 years and current lab test showed positive HBsAg but undetected viral load, suggesting chronic hepatitis B virus infection. Some tender infiltrating indurated cord-like nodules developed on the medial side of bilateral thighs. A skin biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of polyarteritis nodosa
