Abstract

Sweet syndrome is a cutaneous lesion characterized by tender, red inflammatory nodules or papules. We describe a pediatric case of Sweet syndrome presenting 10 days after treatment with azathioprine. As azathioprine is widely used in children with inflammatory bowel disease, clinicians should be aware of this unusual adverse reaction.
