About this book


The key knowledge assembled in this book comprises today’s most comprehensive resource on Sjögren’s syndrome.  Sjögren’s patients require the care of a wide variety of clinical and surgical specialists to treat their disease and improve their quality of life.  This volume presents a broad multi-disciplinary approach, enlisting the expertise of well-respected authors from around the world, covering the specialties of rheumatology, ophthalmology, oral medicine, oral surgery, otolaryngology, hematology, and others.


This practical clinical resource begins with an overview of Sjögren’s myths, pearls and tips, information for referring physicians, and diagnostic and classification and criteria.  The second section covers pathogenesis, providing the backbone for our understanding current diagnostics and therapeutics.  The third section is devoted to clinical manifestations and therapeutic considerations.  It covers the entire spectrum of symptoms and treatment, infused with the experience and astute clinical observations of the book’s contributors.  With system-wide coverage of local and systemic therapy, the book examines current therapy, biologics, and emerging therapeutic targets.


Presenting many international perspectives, this book creates an inter-connective conduit for the global community of Sjögren’s patients and physicians.
