Abstract


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