Default Yes, the answer is Polyarteritis nodosa

Hsiotory of the patient reveals the trip to asia, and his lab result show abnormalities in liver function, indicating an acute hepatitis. About 30% of Polyarteritis nodosa patients co-present hepatitis B( according to FA notes). Other choices usually are not associated with hepatitis.
