Description

Sjögren’s syndrome is a chronic, autoimmune disease that causes dryness of the eyes, mouth and other body parts.  In an autoimmune disease, the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue, leading to inflammation in the body. In Sjögren’s syndrome, the infection-fighting cells of the immune system (lymphocytes) attack the normal cells of glands that produce moisture in the eyes, mouth and other tissues.
