A rare presentation of Sweet's syndrome (SS) (acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis) is being reported in a 28-year-old man from India. I report a rare presentation of SS that consisted of bilaterally symmetrical, bullous lesions on both forearms with a seasonal recurrence. A thorough work-up for the usual conditions predisposing to or leading to SS did not throw any light on the etiology. After failing treatment with prednisolone alone we added indomethacin, and he responded to the combination in a matter of days with complete clearance of lesions.
