Abstract

Pulmonary hypertension is rarely described in association with Sjögren's syndrome. The authors report the case of a patient in which pulmonary hypertension was the inaugural clinical manifestation of primary Sjögren's syndrome. Clinical assessment, differential diagnosis, etiopathological implications, and therapeutic approach are discussed.
