Abstract

We present a rare case of acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, also known as Sweet syndrome, associated with recurrence of metastatic cervical cancer. This report highlights similar reports and serves as an important reminder of the relationship between Sweet syndrome and cervical cancer. Increasing awareness of Sweet syndrome assists clinicians in recognizing characteristic findings and encourages evaluation of patients for new-onset or recurrent neoplastic disease. Additionally, we discuss the typical presentation of the syndrome, the proper workup and treatment, and a common pitfall encountered in the diagnosis of Sweet syndrome.
