Abstract

The onset of renal micropolyarteritis has been associated with the administration of a number of drugs: penicillins, suiphonamides and phenytoin have been more frequently recorded. The relationship between NSAID and renal micropolyarteritis, although hypothesized in other reports (1) (2), is often difficult to demonstrate, because initial symptoms of vasculitis frequently include arthritis and or arthralgias: consequently many patients are given NSAID for relieving these symptoms, often after the onset of the disease.
