Abstract

Sjogren's syndrome is an autoimmune disease that is characterized by keratoconjunctivitis sicca and xerostomia. Small-fiber neuropathy is rare, although neurological manifestations occur in as many as 30% of patients with Sjogren's syndrome. We report herein a patient with Sjogren's syndrome who presented with autonomic neuropathy and painful sensory neuropathy. Primary Sjogren's syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis of small-fiber neuropathy.
