    Sweet syndrome was discovered in 1964 and is now well described in the dermatology literature. Knowledge of this unique febrile and painful dermatosis is important for the emergency physician because the syndrome can be readily identified and is extremely responsive to oral steroid therapy. Early diagnosis can greatly improve patient satisfaction and avoid days of ineffective treatment. Read More

    Premorbid History of Major Depression and the Depressive Syndrome of Alzheimer's Disease.
    Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 1996 Winter;4(1):85-90. Epub 2012 Aug 11.
    Department of Psychiatry, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA.
    To test the hypothesis that primary degenerative dementia of the Alzheimer type (PDD-AT) may increase the likelihood of expression of a lifetime vulnerability to the development of depression, the authors compared the premorbid rates of major depression in psychiatric inpatients with dementia, with or without a concurrent syndrome of depression. A premorbid history of major depression was four times more common in patients with the depressive syndrome of PDD-AT than in PDD-AT patients without depression. The authors discuss the significance of these findings for pathophysiologic models and estimates of comorbidity of depression in PDD-AT. Read More

    Phenomenology and Prevalence of Neuroleptic-Induced Akathisia in Late Life.
    Am J Geriatr Psychiatry 1993 Spring;1(2):136-142. Epub 2013 Jan 28.
    Geriatric Health Services, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA; Department of Psychiatry, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX.

Subjective complaints of akathisia were associated with a diagnosis of major depression and correlated with Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression scores but were not associated with current neuroleptic treatment. Objective evidence of akathisia was strongly associated with current neuroleptic use. Read More

    The Pathergy Test as a Diagnostic Tool.
    Skinmed 2017 1;15(2):97-104. Epub 2017 Apr 1.
    Dermatology Unit, Kaplan Medical Center, Rechovot, Israel.
    The pathergy test produces a nonspecific hyperreactive lesion in Behçet's disease (BD), a finding that has been known since 1937. Pathergy refers to the development of new skin lesions or the aggravation of existing ones after trivial trauma. In clinical practice, the pathergy test induces a skin response by needleprick, with positive reactions manifesting as a papule or pustule developing by 48 hours. Read More

    A Case of Sweet's Syndrome Secondary to Myelodysplastic Syndrome - Diagnostic and Treatment Challenges.
    Maedica (Buchar) 2016 Jun;11(2):154-157
    Department of Onco-hematology, "Maria Sklodowska Curie" Children's Emergency Hospital, Bucharest, Romania.
    Sweet's Syndrome also knows as acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, is a rare skin's condition, that can occur either idiopathic or secondary. In the case of the latter, the syndrome can develop after certain malignancies (paraneoplastic syndrome), because of exposure to some medication or post infectious. It is more frequent in women aged between 30 and 50 years, but concerning children, the disorder is extremely rare (8% of the total number of cases), having equal sex ratio distribution. Read More
