BACKGROUND: Neutrophilic eccrine hidradentitis is a recently described clinical entity. Most reported cases have occurred in patients given chemotherapy for acute myelogenous leukemia, suggesting a drug induced mechanism. Some authors have considered however that neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis belongs to the group of neutrophilic dermatoses.

CASE REPORT: We observed neutrophilic eccrine hidradentitis in a 48-year-old man which developed when he suffered a relapse of acute leukemia. He had not been given chemotherapy in the preceding months.

DISCUSSION: This case favors the hypothesis that neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis is associated with myeloid hemotology disorders and not a complications secondary to treatment.
