MIRANDA, Carolina Villela da Rocha et al. Sweet's Syndrome associated with Hodgkin's disease: case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.5, pp. 1016-1018. ISSN 0365-0596. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000500025.
Sweet's syndrome is a rare cutaneous disease of unknown etiology. About 20% of the cases are associated with hematological neoplasms, and cases related with Hodgkin's disease are rare. We present the case of a 57-year old male patient who developed the syndrome concomitantly with the neoplasm. The diseases were controlled with specific treatment.
