    ABSTRACT: An elderly black male with Kaposi's sarcoma of the skin and lymph nodes is presented. The patient developed several violaceous papules involving the nose, which suggested a diagnosis of sarcoidosis clinically but proved to be Kaposi's sarcoma on biopsy. His clinical course was complicated by the development of acquired ichthyosis. The prognosis and treatment of generalized Kaposi's sarcoma is discussed.

    ABSTRACT: Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis (AFND) (Sweet's syndrome) is characterized by warm, erythematous plaques, accompanied by arthralgias, fever, and leukocytosis. A 53-year-old man was seen with chronic, recurrent, and unusually persistent AFND. The patient had a history of a gastrojejunostomy for peptic ulcer disease and had symptoms of the blind loop syndrome. Medical therapy for the blind loop syndrome failed to control his skin lesions, fever, or leukocytosis. His symptoms did respond to prednisone therapy, however. The relationship of AFND to the bowel bypass syndrome is discussed.
