Title: Sjögren´s syndrome in present
Author: T. Feltsan, P. Stanko, J. Mracna

Abstract: Sjögren´s syndrome is a systemic autoimmune disease characterized by a reduced function of exocrine glands, mainly salivary and lacrimal glands based on chronic plasmocellular infiltration. Syndrome includes affection of glands in gastrointestinal system, respiratory apparatus, skin, and vaginal mucosa. I tis described separately as a primary Sjögren´s syndrome or together with other inflammatory rheumatic diseases as a secondary Sjögren´s syndrome. Advanced diagnostic is based mainly on serologic examinations. Treatment of patients reflects the form of Sjögren´s syndrome. Despite recent knowledge the treatment is rather symptomatic than causal (Ref. 12).

Keywords: Sjögren´s syndrome, xerostomia, xerophthalmia.
