Abstract

Sjögren's syndrome is an immune system disorder characterized by dry eyes and dry mouth. With this disorder, the body's immune system attacks its own healthy cells that produce saliva and tears. Sjögren's syndrome often occurs with other such disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Treatments include eye drops, medication and eye surgery.
