The systemic inflammatory response syndrome consists of an acute inflammatory response induced by inflammatory factors related to sepsis and extensive injuries. Parallel to the chronic course of some dermatological diseases, acute manifestations, characterized by the exacerbation of pre-existing lesions and the presence of systemic signs and laboratorial changes, may occur. In this article, etiopathogenic aspects of Systemic inflammatory response syndrome and its presence in some dermatoses are discussed.
