Sjogren’s Resources: History of Sjogren’s

Dr. Henrik Sjögren is generally credited with the discovery of Sjogren’s in 1925, however symptoms of SS are documented as early as 1871. There are several conditions: sicca complex syndrome, Mikulicz’s disease, and Gougerot’s syndrome;  that are very similar or even considered Sjogren’s now which were discovered before Dr. Sjögren defined Sjogren’s Syndrome.
