Abstract

Sweet Syndrome, or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, is characterized by tender erythematous skin lesions (Figure 1 and 2) frequently associated with fever and leukocytosis. Despite being an uncommon inflammatory disease, it is triggered by infections, pregnancy, drugs and malignancy. We report a case of a man diagnosed with Sweet Syndrome.
