Sjogrenâ??s Syndrome Presenting as a Longitudinally Extensive Transverse Myelitis. A case report

Introduction: Sjogren's (SHOW-grins) syndrome is a disorder of your immune system identified by its two most common symptoms dry eyes and a dry mouth. The condition often accompanies other immune system disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is a rare relapsing auto-immune disease of the central nervous system which is sometimes found in association with other autoimmune disorders including Sjogren?s syndrome. Sjogren's syndrome can be difficult to diagnose because the signs and symptoms vary from person to person and can be similar to those caused by other diseases. Side effects of a number of medications also mimic some signs and symptoms of Sjogren's syndrome.Tests can help rule out other conditions and help pinpoint a diagnosis of Sjogren's syndrome. We present the case of a middle aged female with Sjogren?s syndrome (SS) and Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD) who had a rapidly declining neurological illness that responded to immunosuppressive therapy.
