Polyarteritis Nodosa- commonly known as Beagle Syndrome. If properly diagnosed and treated this autoimmune problem is a minor condition. If not, it can be life threatening. Problems occur between the ages of 6 months and 2 years. Symptoms include: soreness and stiffness of the neck, and lethargy. If left untreated high temperatures can be experienced. Treatment includes antibiotics, and for more severe cases - steriods. This problem has been misdiagnosed as neck injury, or Meningitis.
