Lupus Erythematosus and Neutrophilic Dermatosis Sweets Syndrome

Neutrophilic dermatosis was first reported in association with SCLE by Goette in 1985. The next patient, described by Levenstein et al. (Levenstein et al. 1991), had a simultaneous appearance of both SCLE and Sweet's syndrome. The patient was later investigated for SS, and the latter was diagnosed in him. Therefore, the authors recommended that each patient with the clinical picture of both diseases be investigated for SS. Their suggestion is based on the article by Katayama et al. (Katayama et al. 1991), who found clinical evidence of annular erythema resembling Sweet's syndrome in 14 of 22 patients with SS. Choi and Chung (Choi and Chung 1999) described a patient with SLE, Sweet's syndrome and herpes zoster. SLE preceded for 3 months the appearance of Sweet's syndrome. Choi and Chung presumed that antibodies of SLE may have a role in the development of Sweet's syndrome because autoantibodies are incriminated in the pathogenesis of Sweet's syndrome. The patient described by Choi and Chung is probably the only one with SLE and Sweet's syndrome. Two articles published earlier described patients with hydralazine-induced LE and Sweet's syndrome (Ramsey-Goldman et al. 1990, Sequeira et al. 1986).
