Show Summary Details

Preview

Primary Sjögren’s syndrome involves the cardinal siccal syndrome of xerostomia and xeroophthalmia. Neurological manifestations generally affect the peripheral nervous system in the form of neuropathy but can also target the central nervous system and overlap with demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis and neuromyelitis optica. In this chapter, we review the systemic and neurologic features of Sjögren’s syndrome, and how to approach a patient with neurological symptoms secondary to Sjögren’s syndrome.
