Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis following tuberculous infection.

Abstract

A case of acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis (Sweet's syndrome) in association with tuberculosis has been reported. However association of the two diseases is not common. It appears as if Mycobacterium tuberculosis present somewhere in the body can induce cutaneous reactions as is the case in erythema nodosum and erythema induratum.
