Sjögren’s syndrome is a relatively common autoimmune disorder, affecting 2–3% of the adult population. It is characterised by lymphocytic infiltration and destruction of the exocrine glands. Neurologic involvement occurs in approximately 20% of patients with primary Sjögren syndrome. Affected central nervous system may show similar clinical and radiological findings as in multiple sclerosis. In these cases, early diagnosis and treatment for the sjögren has a great importance for the prognosis of the disease.
