Sjogren syndrome is a chronic, slowly progressive autoimmune disease characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of exocrine glands resulting in xerostomia and dry eyes. Patients with primary Sjogren syndrome are at risk for developing hypokalemia as a complication of immune mediated interstitial nephritis and renal tubular acidosis.
