On October 17, 2001, we examined a 47‐year‐old white woman with a 1‐week history of painful, burning, pruritic lesions on the arms ( Fig. 1 ), legs, and back. Initial self‐treatment included Neosporin® and over‐the‐counter lotions with no response. Examination revealed several erythematous lesions, which appeared bullous, but felt solid on palpation and puncture. There was no mucosal involvement. A review of systems indicated generally good health with no fever, although the patient complained… 
Sweet's syndrome associated with cellulitis
TLDR

Sweet's syndrome associated with cellulitis - a challenging diagnosis*
TLDR
Clinical, laboratory and pathological data suggested the diagnosis of Sweet's syndrome, probably secondary to cellulitis of the right inferior limb, and it is suggested that cellulitis may be associated with Sweet's Syndrome.
Sweet's syndrome – a comprehensive review of an acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis
TLDR
The symptoms and lesions of Sweet's syndrome may resolved spontaneously, without any therapeutic intervention; however, recurrence may follow either spontaneous remission or therapy-induced clinical resolution, and evidence suggests that cytokines have an etiologic role.
Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis (Sweet's syndrome)
TLDR
The dermatosis remains a fascinating condition with regard to laboratory investigation, clinical manifestations and treatment, and treatment advances include antitumour necrosis factor- alpha drugs.

FURTHER OBSERVATIONS ON ACUTE FEBRILE NEUTROPHILIC DERMATOSIS

  • 1968
TLDR
The belated recognition of similar microscopical appearances in a striking, localized lesion on a lady's face led to her successful treatment, and it is suggested that this lesion may have been the result of a localized immune reaction similar to that occuring over wide areas in acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis.
Sweet's syndrome and toxoplasmosis: a coincidental association?
TLDR
Clinical and histopathological manifestations were compatible with the cutaneous reactive manifestation of toxoplasmosis and disappeared only after specific therapy.
AN ACUTE FEBRILE NEUTROPHTLIC DERMATOSTS.
TLDR
The object of this paper is to draw a composite picture of the condition and behaviour of these patients and to describe briefly their variations, in the hope that thereby others who have seen similar cases may at least be able to classify them, and not remain as ignorant as ever about their essential nature.
Sweet's syndrome: histological and immunohistochemical study of 15 cases.
TLDR
The lack of any vasculitis emphasises the distinctive character of Sweet's syndrome when compared with certain spontaneous and experimentally induced inflammatory skin lesions, and may imply a similarly distinctive pathogenesis.
Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis.
TLDR
Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, or Sweet's syndrome, usually occurs in middle-aged women with a preceding upper respiratory tract infection and Corticosteroid therapy produces rapid improvement of all manifestations.
