Abstract

Sjögren's syndrome is the most common autoimmune disorder among women. This chronic, progressive condition targets moisture-producing glands and seriously disrupts quality of life. With vague symptomatology, individuals frequently delay seeking medical attention and develop systemic organ involvement. Comprehension of clinical features will assist nurses and nurse practitioners in primary care settings to facilitate diagnosis and supportive therapy, thus reducing the burden of disease.
