Sweet's syndrome in a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia

Abstract: Bullous Sweet's syndrome is a rare variant of the inflammatory neutrophilic dermatosis characterised by painful bullous skin lesions, fever, leukocytosis and a neutrophilic infiltrate of the dermis. The condition may be classified according to aetiology into classical (idiopathic), malignancy-associated and drug-induced. Neutrophilic infiltration occurs in response to a systemic insult. A punch biopsy for histology and culture is necessary due to its close resemblance to infection. Characteristic histology fea… Show more

The underlying pathomechanisms of SS are not fully understood.…”

“…A Síndrome de Sweet foi originalmente descrita pelo Dr. Robert Sweet em 1964, como "Dermatose Neutrofílica febril aguda", tendo como base a apresentação clínica-patológica de 8 mulheres que apresentavam febre de início agudo, placas eritematosas sensíveis com infiltração neutrofílica densa na derme e leucocitose (Smith & Williams, 2017). Essas mulheres não apresentavam evidências de infecções e apresentavam respostas rápida ao uso dos corticosteroides (Vithoosan et al, 2019).…”
