Sjögren's Syndrome


Sjogren syndrome is an autoimmune disorder characterized by degeneration of the mucous-secreting glands, particularly the tear ducts of the eyes (lacrimal) and saliva glands of the mouth. Autoimmune disorders are caused when the body's natural defenses (antibodies, lymphocytes, etc.), against invading organisms suddenly begin to attack healthy tissue. It is also associated with inflammatory disorders such as arthritis or Lupus. (NORD/G. Eysenbach)
