Sweet syndrome, also referred to as acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, is characterized by tender, red inflammatory nodules or papules that occur in association with infection, malignancy, connective tissue disease, or following exposure to certain drugs. Here, we present Sweet syndrome in a case with small lymphocytic lymphoma/chronic lymphocytic leukemia (SLL/CLL) which is a relatively rare co-occurrence.

Burada oldukça nadir bir birliktelik olan küçük lenfositik lenfoma/kronik lenfositik lösemili (SLL/CLL) bir vakada gelişen Sweet sendromunu sunduk.
