Abstract

Psychiatric disorders in primary Sjögren-s syndrome constitute a possible clinical reality that each practitioner must be able to recognise and treat. In this article, two case reports of mental disorder as clinical presentation of primary Sjögren-s syndrome are presented, suggesting that psychiatric manifestations in primary Sjögren-s syndrome can occur not only during its longitudinal course, but also at the onset of the autoimmune syndrome. A better adapted prescription of corticosteroids and-or immunosuppressive agents together with specific psychotropic treatments can induce rapid relief of mental symptoms.
