Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Sjögren syndrome is a slowly progressing autoimmune disease. Pulmonary manifestations are frequent in primary Sjögren syndrome but often not clinically significant; the most common are xerotrachea, interstitial lung diseases, and small airway obstruction. Pulmonary manifestations in Sjögren syndrome have a slow progression and favorable prognosis, with the exception of primary pulmonary lymphoma and pulmonary hypertension.
