In the 1930s, Swedish ophthalmologist Henrik Sjögren observed a group of women suffering from arthritis, and curiously, symptoms of dry eyes and dry mouth. After years of study, the syndrome becomes known as Sjögren’s Syndrome, named after the man who provided medical science with valuable information and knowledge regarding this autoimmune disorder.
