IBANEZ FRANCO, Elvis Javier et al. Postinfectious Sweet syndrome. Rev. virtual Soc. Parag. Med. Int. [online]. 2023, vol.10, n.2, pp.124-128.  Epub 30-Sep-2023. ISSN 2312-3893.

Sweet syndrome is a rare type of neutrophilic dermatosis, characterized by an acute febrile picture with the appearance of painful erythematous papules and plaques on the skin, with accompanying peripheral neutrophilia, which improves with the use of corticosteroids.

The case of a 22-year-old patient, with vitiligo as the underlying disease, is presented. She attended for a 1-week history of ungraded feverish sensation and insidious appearance of lesions on photo-exposed skin. Laboratory and histopathological studies were carried out, leading to the diagnosis of Sweet syndrome. With the results of the paraclinical studies, treatment with systemic and topical corticosteroids was started with an excellent response.

Palabras clave : skin diseases; Sweet syndrome; respiratory tract infections.
