Sjögren's Syndrome

Although there are very few data in the literature, it has previously been observed that, as with SLE, providing that the disease is well controlled at conception, the prognosis is good. It is important to maintain appropriate therapy, such as low dose steroids, hydroxychloroquine and/or azathioprine if being used before pregnancy, and to avoid conception during active disease, as with SLE and vasculitis.[14]
