A 23-year-old man presented with severe hypertension. Based on his history of minocycline treatment for over three years and clinical symptoms, such as myalgias and renovascular hypertension with multiple intrarenal aneurysms, he was diagnosed with minocycline-induced renal polyarteritis nodosa (PAN). After minocycline treatment cessation and management of the hypertension, his blood pressure, renin-aldosterone levels, and urinary protein levels gradually improved. Seven and a half years later, repeated angiography found that the aneurysms had resolved. This is the first report in English describing a case of minocycline-induced renal PAN that was reversed functionally and morphologically without steroids or immunosuppressive drugs.
