It is mainly associated with fever and peripheral leucocytosis. It was first described by Robert Douglas Sweet in 1964 (2). Females are affected more than males. It is characterised by neutrophilic infiltration of papillary dermis, where an underlying chance of unknown malignancy can be present (1).
