• A case of Sweet's syndrome (acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis) is reported in a patient with long-standing rheumatoid arthritis. Although Sweet's syndrome has been described in association with leukemias, other malignancies, and a variety of Inflammatory disorders, it has not been associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Sweet's syndrome is reviewed with regard to pathogenesis and associated diseases.
