 Sweet's disease was known as acute febrile neutrophilic dermatitis, characterized by tender raised erythematous plaques and associated with predominantly neutrophilic infiltration in the dermis. It was well known that the disease was sometimes associated with gastrointestinal tract disorders such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. We encounterd non specific ulcers in the ileocecal area. These ulcers were characterized by discrete or punched-out-like ulcers, located at an anti-mesenteric site and which were often thought of as simple ulcers or Behçet's disease. However, the ulcers were neither deep nor and associated with mucosal tags like inflammatory polyps. In a case of long-term follow-up after resection, recurrent ulcers were noticed after 7 years and the ulcers were cured by an elementary diet. An elementary diet was effective for the treatment of nonspecific ulcers associated with Sweet's disease.
