Case Report

Primary Sjogren Syndrome Presenting as Recurrent Parotitis

KL Yam, Ch Lau, CK Li


Abstract

A nine year old Chinese girl presented with recurrent parotitis. Immunological and radiological investigations confirmed primary Sjogren syndrome. This condition is less common in children than in adults. However physicians should be alerted to this diagnosis in children with recurrent parotitis because of the possible implication: the need of long term follow up for emergence of autoimmune and lymphoproliferative diseases. Symptomatic treatment for the disability should be offered.
