Abstract

The most common presentations of Sjogren’s syndrome include dryness of eyes, oral cavity, and features of systemic scleroderma. When a patient walks in with such classical features, it becomes easy for the clinician to diagnose and treat the patient. However, Sjogren’s syndrome may present atypically as experienced in the present case. Here, the authors present a case of Sjogren’s syndrome, which presented as hypokalemic periodic palsy, secondary to distal renal tubular acidosis.
