The incidence of polyarteritis nodosa is approximately 3 to 4 per 100,000 individuals worldwide.The prevalence among alaskan population suffering with hepatitis B infection is approximately 7.7 per 100,000 individuals.Patients of all age groups may develop polyarteritis nodosa.There is no racial predilection to polyarteritis nodosa.Males are more commonly affected by polyarteritis nodosa than females.Population prevalence estimates for polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) range from 2 to 33 per million across the European Countries.
