Abstract

Sweet's syndrome is frequently idiopathic; however, it has been associated with malignancy in up to 20% of reported cases. We report a case of concurrent presentation of Sweet's syndrome with sarcoidosis. Although this association has been infrequently described we feel that this could be an alternative diagnosis in patients with Sweet's syndrome who present with mediastinal lymphadenopathy with or without erythema nodosum. The relevant literature on this subject is reviewed.
