IS THERE A CONNECTION AIDS , Sjogren's Syndrome and Connective Tissue Disorders
Mar 22, 2012

I WAS RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH SLE MIXED CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISEASE DISORDER IS THERE A CONNECTION AIDS , Sjogren's Syndrome and Connective Tissue Disorders

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

There is an association between HIV and inflammation of the salivary glands- this can symptomatically resemble Sjogren's syndrome. It's important to point out that there are a number of different illnesses of the salivary glands, so a diagnostic evaluation is important to discriminate between different entities.

Hope that helps, BY
