Sweet’s syndrome, acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, radiocontrast-induced, drug-induced, acute kidney injury, oesophageal ulcers
Sweet's syndrome or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis is characterized by an acute inflammatory skin eruption of oedematous and erythematous papules, plaques or nodules, accompanied by fever, and leucocytosis with possible extracutaneous involvement. Aetiologies include infections, inflammatory bowel disease, pregnancy or malignancy, or the syndrome may be drug-induced by many classes of medications or very rarely, radiocontrast exposure. Herein, the authors report a case of radiocontrast-induced bullous Sweet's syndrome and contrast-induced acute kidney injury in a woman in her 60s with a complex medical history.
