We examined eight patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome and uveitis. In all patients, the uveitis was bilateral, chronic, anterior and posterior, and not associated with active chorioretinitis. Seven of the eight patients were women. The diagnosis of primary Sjögren's syndrome was generally based on results of a Schirmer test, minor salivary gland biopsy, and serologic studies. Frequent findings included keratic precipitates, cataract, a pars plana exudate, an increased sedimentation rate, a positive test for antinuclear antibodies in a speckled pattern, and associated systemic disease compatible with the spectrum of Sjögren's syndrome.
