Abstract

Sjogren's syndrome(SS) is an autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation induced chronic dysfunction of the exocrine glands. Neurologic manifestations occurs in 30% of patients. We report a 55-year-old woman with primary SS, who presented with subacute aseptic meningitis combined with an unnoticed polyneuropathy. SS was confirmed by dry eyes and Schirmer's test, salivary scintigraphy and serum autoantibodies. We suggest SS as a cause of subacute aseptic meningitis in an elderly female patient with dry eyes and mouth.
