Sjögren俟Q製 Syndrome (SS) is a chronic systemic autoimmune disorder, characterized by the lymphocytic infiltration of lacrimal and salivary glands, giving rise to dry eyes (keratoconjunctivitis sicca) and dry mouth (xerostomia). Primary Sjögren俟Q製 Syndrome commonly presents only with sicca manifestations; whereas, secondary Sjögren俟Q製 syndrome occurs in connection with other autoimmune rheumatic diseases. Primary Sjögren俟Q製 syndrome without ocular manifestation is rarely reported in the literature. Here we report a case of a 45-year-old female, who presented to us with complaints of dryness of mouth and dysphagia, without any ocular and systemic manifestations. On further evaluation she was diagnosed as a case of Primary Sjögren俟Q製 syndrome. With this case report, we intend to emphasize the importance of an early diagnosis of this disorder, along with a brief review of various diagnostic criteria.
