Ocular manifestations of Sweet syndrome, or acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, are usually limited to the anterior segment. We report the case of a patient with bilateral panuveitis and retinal vasculitis associated with Sweet syndrome. A 45-year-old Asian female with an undiagnosed febrile illness with rash presented with bilateral panuveitis with haemorrhagic occlusive retinal vasculitis. Skin biopsy confirmed Sweet Syndrome. Intraocular inflammation resolved with a combination of topical and systemic corticosteroids as well as intravenous cyclophosphamide, with resulting permanent severe right visual impairment. Although an uncommon condition, Sweet syndrome should be considered in any febrile patient with skin lesions and uveitis.
