Sjogren's syndrome: More than dry eyes and dry mouth

David Smith, L. M. Lucas

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Sjogren's syndrome is a complex disease state with multi-system manifestations. Two forms of the disease, primary and secondary, are recognized; the secondary form is more easily diagnosed because of its association with an already established rheumatic or autoimmune disease. Treatment consists of measures to prevent damage from ocular and oral dryness (sicca complex) and to minimize systemic manifestations.
