Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a common autoimmune disease, can involve the nervous system, but rarely both the central and peripheral. In patients with connective tissue disease such as Sjögren's syndrome with fungal diseases such as pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP), candidiasis, cryptococcosis, and penicilliosis, these fungal diseases are always induced by long-term therapy with immunosuppressant, but only a few case reports are describing multiple organ infection in patients. The authors report a case of Sjögren's syndrome with nervous system injury combined with pulmonary and osseous cryptococcosis.
