Ranked among the top rheumatology programs by U.S. News & World Report
A chronic inflammatory condition thought to affect as many as four million Americans, Sjögren's syndrome occurs when the immune system targets the body’s own moisture-producing organs.
Sufferers -- often middle-aged women -- typically experience extreme dryness in the mouth, eyes, and other mucous membranes.
Duke rheumatologists are dedicated to helping patients manage this potentially serious autoimmune disorder. We coordinate with other appropriate Duke specialists -- ophthalmologists and otolaryngologists, for example -- to deliver the cross-disciplinary care Sjögren's syndrome patients require.
