As a chronic, "autoimmune" inflammatory disorder, Sjögren's syndrome has increasingly occupied the attention of clinical and laboratory workers during the past two decades. This is not only because the syndrome may be commoner than previously suspected but because disease mechanisms currently under intensive investigation in many areas of medicine are involved in concepts of its pathogenesis. The presentation of a monograph devoted wholly to this condition, as the second volume in the series Major Problems in Internal Medicine, is therefore both proper and timely. Dr. Shearn's experience in observing and commenting on this syndrome makes him an appropriate author.
