Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a systemic disease with a predilection for the exocrine glands. It also is considered to be an autoimmune epitheliitis, and, as the respiratory system is lined throughout with epithelial cells, it should not be surprising that patients who have SS may develop pulmonary disease. This article describes these manifestations.
