The clinical features of Sjogren's syndrome were found in 24 percent of Glasgow patients with SLE without other atypical features. Sjogren's syndrome was found in one (13 percent) of a group of eight patients with features of both SLE and scleroderma, one of three patients with features of both polymyositis and scleroderma and in three of 12 (25 percent) patients with scleroderma. The highest frequency of Sjogren's syndrome was seen in six patients with features of SLE and an erosive polyarthritis, five of whom (83 percent) had Sjogren's syndrome. In patients satisfying diagnostic criteria for SLE no relationship between the presence of Sjogren's and the presence or absence of renal disease was found.
