Abstract

Sweet's syndrome (SS) is an uncommon inflammatory condition. The main signs and symptoms are fever, malaise and skin lesions. Misdiagnosis is common and biopsy is needed to detect characteristic physiological changes in the upper dermis. Standard treatment is oral corticosteroids but SS can be difficult to manage, with symptoms recurring in at least 30% of cases. Nurses can offer advice and support for patients and their families, and show them where to find accurate information.
