Sjögren's syndrome is a systemic autoimmune disease with a high burden for the individual, as well as society. Pulmonary compromise presents with a myriad of manifestations that influence patient quality of life and mortality risk. An integrated dynamic approach by a multidisciplinary diagnostic discussion team that includes experts in chest diseases, rheumatology, radiology, and pathology has the potential to improve the identification, management strategies, and outcomes. Although early recognition of patients at high risk is essential, there is currently a lack of reliable biomarkers. Pharmacological therapies are based on immunomodulation, although the evidence to support their use is of low quality. Increasing awareness and training among healthcare professionals may reduce a delayed access to specialized assessment.
