Abstract

Objective. To present cases of coexisting sarcoidosis and Sjogren's syndrome (SS). Methods. We analyzed the clinical data of our 464 patients with SS with a clinical picture suggesting coexisting SS and sarcoidosis. We followed them for several years. Results. We found 5 patients with coexisting SS and sarcoidosis. In 3 patients, pure sarcoidosis could mimic SS. Conclusion. In our experience, the frequency of sarcoidosis in SS is much higher than in the general population. One of the European criteria is that before the diagnosis of SS is made, the presence of sarcoidosis must be excluded. From our experience of 5 cases we determined that the 2 diseases can coexist, which indicates the value of these criteria.
