Gougerot-Sjögren syndrome is an autoimmune disease of idiopathic etiology which has a slew of signs and symptoms all over the body especially within the mucosal surfaces. Epitomical of its cardinal symptoms of the primary type are xerophthalmia, xerostomia and vaginal dryness. For secondary Sjögren syndrome, it involves another connective tissue disorder, mostly rheumatoid arthritis. Malignant transformation into lymphoma and squamous cell carcinoma is well-documented. This report describes a… Expand

Sjögren’s Syndrome or Autoimmune Epithelitis?
TLDR
Clinical studies suggest that the majority of extraglandular manifestations of SS are due to the attraction of lymphocytes by different epithelial tissues and thus the descriptive term "autoimmune epithelitis" instead of "Sjögren's syndrome" is proposed. Expand
Treating Sjögren’s syndrome: insights for the clinician
TLDR
In the last few years, the advancement in the understanding the pathogenetic mechanisms of this disorder and the availability of new biologic target therapies seem to offer completely new therapeutic options. Expand
Malignant lymphoma in primary Sjogren's syndrome.
TLDR
A low grade marginal-zone lymphoma related to mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue is the commonest lymphoid neoplasia in Sjogren's syndrome. Expand
Classification criteria for Sjögren’s syndrome
  • C. Vitali
  • Medicine
  • Annals of the rheumatic diseases
  • 2003
TLDR
The author reviewed the different criteria that have been proposed for the classification of patients with Sjogren’s syndrome and commented on the US-European Consensus Group criteria, which were reported for the first time in this same issue. Expand
The role of intrinsic epithelial activation in the pathogenesis of Sjögren's syndrome.
Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a chronic autoimmune disorder that is characterized by dysfunction and destruction of the exocrine glands. Exocrinopathy is associated with periductal mononuclear cellExpand
The linear echogenic hilus in cervical lymphadenopathy--a sign of benignity or malignancy?
TLDR
In the authors' experience the linear echogenic hilus should not be regarded as a sole criterion for benignity and a cytological diagnosis, preferably by an ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration, should always be sought. Expand
Role of ultrasound in the assessment of benignity and malignancy of parotid masses.
TLDR
It is challenging to use sonography for differentiating between benign and malignant parotid gland masses and to make a definite diagnosis, ultrasound-guided FNA or core biopsy is advocated. Expand
Ultrasound-guided biopsy in the evaluation of focal lesions and diffuse swelling of the parotid gland.
TLDR
Ultrasound-guided core biopsy with a spring-loaded device in 54 patients who presented with palpable lesions of the parotid gland provided a sample suitable for histological analysis in all patients and was done quickly and safely under local anaesthesia. Expand
Ultrasound elastography: Its potential role in assessment of cervical lymphadenopathy.
TLDR
UE as an adjunct ultrasound modality holds some promise in screening and monitoring lymphadenopathy. Expand
Image-guided core-needle biopsy of peripheral lymph nodes allows the diagnosis of lymphomas
TLDR
IGNB was equally effective in making the correct diagnosis of lymphoma at the time of original diagnosis than at relapse, and the results did not depend on the biopsy site, lymph nodes size, or needle type. Expand
