Sweet's syndrome (acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, SS) may be considered a reactional dermatosis with numerous associated diseases. We describe a rare association between SS and acute sarcoidosis in a 55-year-old woman. The atypical feature of positive tuberculin reaction is discussed. In this association, diagnosis may be challenging with coexistent skin lesions of both diseases. Acute sarcoidosis should be considered when SS is accompanied with mediastinal lymphadenopathy, uveitis or erythema nodosum. Deep-seated nodular lesions in the context of SS are not always 'deep' SS lesions.
