Hyperimmunoglobulin E syndrome with Sjogren’s syndrome in a child

R Mondal, S Sarkar, V Aggarwal, T Sabui

Abstract


We describe a case of hyperimmunoglobulin E syndrome (HIES) associated with Sjogren’s syndrome (SS) in a 10-year-old boy and provide a brief review of the literature. Although seen in adults, SS occurring after a primary immunodeficiency disease such as HIES has not previously been reported in a child.
