Sjogren syndrome is a slowly progressive autoimmune disease with lymphocytic infiltration of exocrine glands, peri-epithelial and extra-epithelial tissues. In light of better diagnostic modalities and improved treatment options, patients with Sjogren syndrome are now commonly encountered by anaesthetist for various surgeries. Here, we would like to describe an anaesthetic management of a parturient with bad obstetric history who was diagnosed with Sjogren syndrome and was planned for caesarean delivery. This article also reviewed anaesthetic problems faced due to inherent disease pathology and concurrent alterations in treatment modalities.
