Select Your Answer:
Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis is characterized by the sudden onset of fever; leukocytosis; and tender, red, well-demarcated plaques and papules. There are dense infiltrates of neutrophilic granulocytes.
It is also known as Sweet syndrome.
Half of the patients have a fever, two-thirds have arthralgia or arthritis, and eye involvement is seen in more than one-third. It is most often conjunctivitis or iridocyclitis. Oral aphthae are seen in 13%.
