Sweet's syndrome is a rare skin disease whose aetiopathogenesis is not yet completely clear. Not all Authors agree in considering the syndrome as a paraneoplastic reaction and very probably the dermatitis should be considered as a hypersensitivity reaction. The constant finding of an abundant leukocyte infiltrate in the superficial derma has suggested the hypothesis that the PMN may play a fundamental role in the pathogenesis of Sweet's syndrome. Here a rare male case of Sweet's syndrome which offered the chance to evaluate certain important neutrophil function parameters rarely reported in the literature of this disease is reported.
