CLINICAL CASE OF OVERLAP SYNDROME OF AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES
Keywords:Sjögren’s syndrome, Celiac disease, overlap syndrome
We are presenting a rare case of overlap of Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) and Celiac disease (CD). It is necessary to evaluate and diagnose timely the possible presence of other autoimmune diseases in the presence of any autoimmune disease, because they have about a 25% risk of developing several of them at the same time, which is called overlap syndrome. It is very important to do screening, follow up and regular GI care of Sjögren’s syndrome patients to identify CD case and help them to avoid severe malnutrition, hyponatremia, anaemia and later intestinal malignancies.
