What is Sjögren syndrome during pregnancy?

Sjögren syndrome is an autoimmune condition in which the immune system attacks fluid-producing glands, especially salivary glands and tear glands. This leads to dry mouth (xerostomia) and dry eyes (xerophthalmia). The significance of Sjögren syndrome for pregnancy is that sometimes the antibodies produced by the immune system in the disease process can cause problems for the baby.
