Sjögren syndrome (SS) is a chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune disease. It emerges as a dry mouth and eyes (sicca symptoms) because, it fundamentally affects exocrine glands, frequently, salivary gland and lachrymal gland. Neurological involvement in Sjögren syndrome is observed in the approximately 20-25% of cases. 87% of the neurological involvements are peripheral nervous system involvement and around 13% of the neurological involvements are central nervous system involvement. Cerebral involvement represents heterogeneous features in terms of both localization (focal or diffuse) and progress of the statement (acute, progressive or reversible). Affected central nervous system can show clinical and radiological signs similar to Multiple sclerosis (MS). In this paper, the case, which has a complaint of difficulty in walking and instability and MS like lesions in brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and is diagnosed as Sjögren syndrome by further research, is discussed.
