Sweet's syndrome and erythema nodosum in a patient with positive serology for Borrelia burgdorferi

European Journal of Dermatology 5(2): 135-138

The case of a 32-year-old man in Spain who developed a clinical picture of high fever, general malaise, arthromyalgia, conjunctivitis, painful erythematous plaques on his neck and painful nodular lesions on his legs after a tick bite is reported. Analysis of peripheral blood revealed neutrophilic leukocytosis and an increase in acute phase reagents. High titres of anti-B. burgdorferi IgM were found.
