Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a common autoimmune disease with a prevalence of 1%. SS affects primarily women between the age of 30 and 50 years. The classic manifestations are sicca symptoms, musculoskeletal pain and fatigue but the disease can affect all organs. SS is associated with the antibody anti-SSA antibodies. The patients have a 15-20 times higher risk of lymphoma and an increased risk of spontaneous abortion and AV-block in life-born children. In this review, we share the diagnostic process and risk stratification and outline the treatments available from private practice.
