Abstract

We report a case of hypokalemic flaccid quadriplegia with sudden respiratory arrest in a 38-year-old woman discovered to have distal renal tubular acidosis which lead to the diagnosis of primary Sjögren's syndrome. This case is compared to 8 similar cases previously described in the literature.
