Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, also referred to as Sweet syndrome, was first described in 1964.1 This disease can be associated with infectious diseases or other conditions, but it is more frequently idiopathic (70% of cases). We report the first case, to our knowledge, of the concomitant occurrence of Sweet syndrome and Pasteurella multocida bronchitis.
