We read with great interest the excellent article by Iqbal et al. titled "Acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis (Sweet's syndrome)."  We applaud the authors on diagnosing and managing the rare entity but would like to add interesting information which has not been presented.
Involvement of the eyes, joints, oral mucosa, lungs, liver, kidneys, and central nervous system has been described.  Ocular involvement most commonly is in the form of conjunctivitis, others being periorbital and orbital inflammation, dacryoadenitis, episcleritis, scleritis, limbal nodules, peripheral ulcerative keratitis, iritis, glaucoma, and choroiditis. The ocular inflammation appears concurrently with skin lesions. 
Second, the diagnostic criteria for sweet syndrome have not been clearly stated by the respected authors. Diagnostic criteria for classical Sweet's syndrome versus drug-induced Sweet's syndrome.
