Sweet syndrome presenting as resistant conjunctivitis

, : Sweet syndrome presenting as resistant conjunctivitis. Cornea 27(10): 1189-1190

We report a patient with chronic Sweet syndrome (SS) treated by anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) therapy, who presented with a severe bilateral chemosis. Case report. Conjunctival biopsy revealed an ocular localization of SS. SS is a rare disorder that usually affects middle-age women. It is characterized by an acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis. To our knowledge, this is the first documented case of an ocular localization in SS and the first report of a severe bilateral chemosis as ocular manifestation.
