Abstract

Sjögren's Syndrome (SS) is the second most common autoimmune disorder after rheumatoid arthritis (RA). It can be found as a lone condition (primary Sjögren's Syndrome) or may accompany other autoimmune rheumatic diseases (secondary Sjögren's Syndrome). Despite such frequent occurrence, accurate diagnosis of Sjögren Syndrome is difficult. These difficulties result from highly variable symptoms of SS as well as from common presence of other autoimmune disorders. In the following article authors present current knowledge concerning clinical symptoms, diagnostic methods and latest clinical guidelines on the diagnosis of SS. Differential diagnosis of SS and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is also discussed.
