We present the spectral energy distribution (SED) between 10 and 200 µm obtained for the prototype narrow-line X-ray galaxy NGC 7582 with ISOPHOT, the photometer on board the Infrared Space Observatory . The emission is spatially extended and we separated for the first time the nuclear and extranuclear infrared SEDs. The nuclear luminosity ([FORMULA] [FORMULA]) is dominated by cold ([FORMULA] 32 K) dust emission mainly due to star formation activity; warm ([FORMULA] 122 K) dust emission is also present and is probably related to the active nucleus. In addition to a cold component of 30 K, the extranuclear SED ([FORMULA] [FORMULA]) shows emission by colder ([FORMULA] 17 K) dust: this very cold component comprises 90% of the total dust mass of [FORMULA] [FORMULA].

Key words: galaxies: active – galaxies: Seyfert – galaxies: individual: NGC 7582

* Based on observations with ISO, an ESA project with instruments funded by ESA Member States (especially the Principal Investigator countries: France, Germany, Netherlands and the United Kingdom) and with the participation of ISAS and NASA.
