Types of Sjogren’s Syndrome: Primary and Secondary

Primary:

Sjogren’s syndrome can occur as a primary disease of exocrine gland dysfunction.

Secondary:

Sjogren’s can co-occur with

  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus

These primary and secondary types occur with similar frequency, but the sicca complex seems to cause more severe symptoms in the primary form.
