Abstract
Sjögren syndrome (SS) is a systemic autoimmune disease that mainly affects the salivary and lacrimal glands. It may exist as a primary condition or in association with other systemic autoimmune diseases. Patients with SS usually complain of persistent dryness of the mouth and eyes and other features, including diverse general symptoms and cutaneous symptoms such as purpura. We report here on a case of 34-year-old woman who presented with purple non-blanching palpable purpura on both lower legs, and these lesions had developed soon after drinking alcohol 2 days previously. She had a 2 year history of repeatedly developing rashes in association with drinking alcohol. The physical examination showed dry eyes and dry mouth. The laboratory tests showed positivity for anti-Ro/SS-A antibody and RF and hyperimmunoglobulinemia. She was diagnosed as suffering with primary SS. Herein we report on a patient with primary SS and this patient initially presented with recurrent purpura in association with alcohol ingestion. Drinking alcohol had played a role as a possible aggravating factor for the cutaneous purpura of this patient with SS.
