INTRODUCTION: Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, or Sweet Syndrome (SS), is characterized by pyrexia, neutrophilia, and painful cutaneous erythematous papules or plaques associated with dense dermal neutrophilic infiltrate. SS may be idiopathic, malignancy-associated or drug-induced; the latter is usually self-limited1. We report a case of Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX)-induced SS mimicking septic shock.
