    Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, or Sweet syndrome, is a cutaneous eruption characterized clinically by the appearance of painful red plaques and nodules and histologically by an intense dermal neutrophilic infiltrate. Extracutaneous manifestations are rare. We report a patient in whom otherwise typical cutaneous Sweet syndrome was accompanied by an extracutaneous manifestation in the ileum.
