Sweet's syndrome is very rare in children, fewer than 80 cases are reported in literature. The lesions usually resolve either spontaneously or after treatment without scarring. Marshall's syndrome is characterised by acute inflammatory skin lesions with subsequent development of localised elastolysis without any internal organ involvement. It is an extremely rare condition in children. There are very few cases reported as Sweet's syndrome leading to acquired cutis laxa - Marshall's syndrome. Sweet's syndrome shows excellent response to systemic steroids, whereas there is no satisfactory treatment for Cutis laxa.
