Photodistributed Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis: a case report 


Photoexposed area involvement in acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis is uncommon and has rarely been described in literature. We report a case of photodistributed Sweets syndrome in a middle aged lady who responded to symptomatic treatment with NSAID and systemic antibiotic. Sweets syndrome is an uncommon inflammatory disorder characterized by the abrupt appearance of painful, oedematous and erythematous papules and plaques or nodules on the skin. Fever and leukocytosis frequently accompany cutaneous lesions. Our patient presented with fever and abrupt onset of painful erythematous plaques over exposed parts of the body.
