Sjogrens Directory

Sjögren's syndrome is a disorder in which the immune system attacks the body's moisture-producing glands, such as the tear glands and the saliva glands, causing extreme dryness in the eyes and mouth. Other symptoms include eye itching and burning, fatigue, and joint pain. Sjogren's sometimes develops in people with other autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or scleroderma. Treatment includes the use of artificial tears, mouth lubricants, and saliva substitutes. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage of Sjogren's causes, symptoms, treatment, and more.
