Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a rare autoimmune disease characterized by glandular and extraglandular organ involvement. It is characterized with keratoconjunctivitis sicca (dry eyes) and xerostomia (dry mouth). The disease develops a stand-alone primary, associated with connective tissue disease is referred to as the secondary and also associated with other rheumatic diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis, rarely SLE, polymyositis etc.). Sarcoidosis is a disease characterized by non-caseous granulomas. The etiology and pathogenesis is not understood. It usually occurs between the ages of 20-40. Sarcoidosis can affect the entire system, including primarily the lungs. Clinical signs of disease duration, the structures involved, the extent of involvement and granulomatous event varies depending on the activity. Three cases with different clinical features are presented since coexistence of SS and sarcoidosis is a rare condition.
