MOLGO N, Montserrat; DE LA SOTTA F, Pilar; GIESEN F, Laura  y  GONZALEZ B, Sergio. Sweet's syndrome associated with acute myeloid leukemia: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2011, vol.139, n.12, pp. 1592-1596. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872011001200009.

Sweet's syndrome, also known as acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, is characterized by fever, neutrophilia, erythematous and tender skin lesions that typically show a diffuse infiltrate of neutrophils in the upper dermis. This disorder has been associated with myeloproliferative syndromes. We report the case of a 53-year-old woman with an acute myeloid leukemia, presenting a Sweet's syndrome. A worsening of cutaneous lesions injuries was observed when granulocyte colony stimulating factor was added to treatment.
