Abstract

A 6-year-old Dachshund was presented with a 2-day history of lethargy, anorexia and cutaneous erythema, edema, and multifocal erythematous papules affecting the ventral abdomen, axillae, and groin. Microscopic examination revealed a sterile neutrophilic dermatitis resembling Sweet's syndrome; however, extracutaneous lesions were not present. The condition responded rapidly to corticosteroid therapy.
