Abstract
Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) is an autoimmune exocrinopathy that manifests itself most commonly as dryness of the mucosal surfaces. Systemic or extraglandular features can also occur. Both primary and secondary forms of SS are recognized to exist. In the latter, the syndrome develops in a patient with another systemic autoimmune disease such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The secondary form of SS is the focus of this chapter. The current nomenclature struggles to classify patients with mixed features of SS and another autoimmune condition. The term “Sjögren’s overlap” has been proposed to describe such patients.
