[en] Neutrophilic eccrine hidradenitis (NEH) is a rare neutrophilic dermatosis occurring most frequently during induction chemotherapy for a variety of malignancies. We report a case of NEH in a 41-year-old woman with acute myeloblastic leukemia under daunorubicin, cytarabine and etoposide chemotherapy. She developed red, tender and painful nodules on a shoulder. The lesions resolved spontaneously. Histological examination is mandatory as the clinical presentation of this dermatosis is highly polymorphic. Leukemia cutis, sepsis, deep fungal infection and Sweet's syndrome must be excluded as these implicate different therapies.
