Abstract: The authors report four patients with primary Sjogren's syndrome (SS) with extraglandular manifestations. In two cases skin purpuric lesions were observed on the lower extremities. No drugs or other connective tissue disease were observed in these two cases. Both had positive rheumatoid factor and one had hypergammaglobulinemia. The third patient had dyspnea after ten months of initial manifestations of SS. The chest roentgenogram showed reticulonodular opacities. The pulmonary histopathological analysis showed vasculitis with mononuclear inflammatory infiltrates, associated with SS. The fourth patient had pulmonary involvement with typical histopathologic features. The vasculitic process and pulmonary involvement may be features of SS and should be considered in cases of SS.
