This study evaluates the incidence and severity of the ocular findings and its correlation with the parotid gland changes, as demonstrated by sialography, in 82 patients with Sjogren's syndrome. It is shown that the ocular component of the syndrome manifests rather autonomously with respect to the accompanying collagen disease and that there seems to be only a tentative trend towards a positive correlation between the ocular and parotid findings. Sjogren's syndrome immunologically is closer to the collagen diseases than to the so-called organ-specific autoimmune diseases.
