AbstractBackground:Pemphigus vulgaris is an autoimmune blistering disease of the skin and mucous membranes. Sweet syndrome is an uncommon reactive neutrophilic dermatosis.Objective:This case report describes the rare presentation of a 58-year-old female patient with newly diagnosed pemphigus vulgaris who later presented with erythematous plaques and leukocytosis highly suggestive of Sweet syndrome.Methods:Review of the literature using the PubMed and Medline databases.Results:The clinical presentation of new-onset Sweet syndrome in a patient with pemphigus has been reported in the literature only on one other occasion.Conclusion:The observation of an association between Sweet syndrome and autoimmune diseases, such as pemphigus vulgaris, may ultimately lead to better understanding of the pathophysiology of this disease.
