 International classification criteria for Sjögrens syndrome include ocular symptoms, oral symptoms, ocular signs, histopathology,​ salivary gland involvement and sialography. The classification requires four of the six items, one of which must be positive minor salivary gland biopsy or a positive antibody test. Early diagnosis is important to prevent further complications. ​  ​(({{pubmed>​long:​25878484}}))  ​ International classification criteria for Sjögrens syndrome include ocular symptoms, oral symptoms, ocular signs, histopathology,​ salivary gland involvement and sialography.

 +Primary ​Sjögren'​s syndrome ​(pSS) is a chronic systemic autoimmune disease, of slow progression,​ characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of the exocrine glands, that leads to sicca symptoms, mainly xerophtalmia and xerostomia. It may involve any organ and lead to extraglandular manifestations,​ which also can precede typical glandular manifestations and delay the diagnosis of pSS. In the past years, better knowledge of the disease has led to improvement in treatment management. ​ ​(({{pubmed>​long:​21794757}}))
