Abstract

Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) is frequently accompanied by hematologic complications, such as Hodgkin lymphoma. Here, we report on two unusual cases in which acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and suspected SS occurred concomitantly. As has been observed for other malignancies, SS may be a paraneoplastic syndrome of AML.

Keywords: Sjögren’s syndrome, acute leukaemia, dry eyes and mouth syndrome
