Rheum Dis Clin North Am. 1993 Nov;19(4):909-12.


Central nervous system involvement in primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) is a controversial issue. Without an international criteria for the diagnosis of pSS, each research center must establish, publish, and strictly adhere to their own criteria. Therefore, patients should be made aware of professional uncertainties, particularly when therapeutic decisions are involved.
