We present a rare association between Sweet Syndrome and Gastric Cancer in 72 year old woman, who came to the hospital with a painful skin lesion, bone pain and polyarthralgia. Initially the skin lesion was studied and it showed Neutrophilic Dermatitis/Paniculitis. An Abdominal CT Scan showed Retroperitoneal limphadenopathy, 2 weeks after admission developed Acute Emetic Syndrome, that did not improve with standard therapy, an upper endoscopy was done showing Gastric Ulcer and Duodenal Infiltrative Lesion, pathologic study showed Gastric Adenocarcinoma that went Lymphathic and Liver metastases. This is the fourth case with this association reported in international bibliography. (Rev Med Hered 2001; 12: 139-141).

Keywords : Sweet syndrome; gastric adenocarcinoma; metastases; neutrophilic dermatitis; emetic syndrome.
