Sjogren's syndrome is an important but poorly recognized cause of peripheral neuropathy. Several forms of peripheral nerve dysfunction occur in Sjogren's syndrome, including trigeminal sensory neuropathy, mononeuropathy multiplex, distal sensorimotor polyneuropathy and pure sensory neuropathy. Rarely, chronic relapsing inflammatory polyneuropathy and multiple cranial neuropathies appear. This report described a patient with primary subacute pure sensory ataxic neuropathy associated with primary Sjogren's syndrome, who presented with ataxia and sensory loss of extremities. The possibility of subacute pure sensory ataxic neuropathy associated with Sjogren's syndrome should be considered in patient, especially middle aged women, who develop sensory neuropathy with ataxia and kinesthetic loss.
