Sweet syndrome (SS) is a neutrophilic dermatosis which is rarely seen in early childhood. Usually, in children, the SS is predominantly of classic/idiopathic type. In 40%–45% of cases, it is secondary to infections. Acquired cutis laxa (ACL) Type II also known as Marshall syndrome is also a very rare cutaneous condition seen in children. Only ten cases have been reported till now. We report this case of a 2-year-old girl with recurrent SS and ACL Type II, who was treated initially with tapering doses of steroids and saturated solution of potassium iodide for maintenance.
