Severe reactional state in lepromatous leprosy simulating Sweet's syndrome.

Abstract

A male patient with underlying lepromatous leprosy mimicked Sweet's syndrome clinically. He was believed to be in an atypical reactional state recognized as a variant form of erythema nodosum leprosum. In addition to the antileprosy treatment, steroid hormone was required to control the systemic symptoms.
