Other Neutrophilic Dermatoses

Several other, rare, ND have been described:

  • Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis is clinically similar to SS, and occurs in patients treated for leukemia.

  • IgA pemphigus resembles SPD but intercellular IgA deposits are found on immunofluorescence (Wallach, 1992).

  • Neutrophilic panniculitis occurs in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome.

  • Aseptic abscesses may be encountered, mainly in patients with an inflammatory bowel disease.

It is important to know that features of more than one ND can be found, simultaneously or sequentially, in the same patient.
