Pulmonary Manifestations of Sjögren's Syndrome

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is primarily defined by its impact on the oral and ocular system resulting in xerostomia and xerophthalmia. However, SS can also manifest throughout the respiratory system. Subclinical pulmonary involvement is common. Clinically significant involvement can result in a 4-fold increased risk of death. Thus, recognizing the many potential presentations of SS in the lung is critical in caring for patients with SS. Additionally, SS should be included in the differential diagnosis of a number of forms of interstitial lung disease.
