Abstract

Sweet syndrome is a reactive neutrophilic dermatosis that develops in response to various systemic illnesses. The cutaneous manifestations include an acute eruption of painful, edematous papules, plaques, pustules, or vesicles associated with fever and other constitutional symptoms. Although the etiology cannot always be determined, Sweet syndrome most commonly arises in reaction to systemic illnesses, such as infections, inflammatory bowel disease, medications, and malignancies. We report a case of chronic, recurrent Sweet syndrome lasting over 15 years in a patient with no identifiable underlying illness.
