The article presents a case of a 66-year old who developed the "sicca syndrome" or the Sjogren's syndrome. She was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis by sigmoidoscopy, barium enema and biopsy. Investigations showed hemoglobin 11.6g/dl, and white cell count. The results were normal for urine analysis, blood urea, electrolytes, liver function tests and creatinine phosphokinase.
