Approximately one in two-hundred people develop Sjogren's Syndrome. It is an autoimmune condition characterized by inflammation of glands that supply moisture to the eyes and mouth. The most common symptoms are dry eyes and dry mouth. Other possible symptoms of Sjogren's include fatigue, swollen glands, skin rashes, vaginal dryness, joint stiffness and muscle achiness. Sjogren's may occur alone or be associated with other rheumatologic conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. Making the diagnosis is important because individuals with Sjogren's have an elevated risk of lymphoma and should be monitored periodically.
