Abstract

Primary Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) is a common rheumatic disease affecting around 0.1–0.2% of the adult female population and results in significant disability without adequate therapy. A multi-disciplinary approach—that includes treatment by rheumatologists, ophthalmologists, and oral medicine physicians—is important to patient management.
