Primary Sjogren's is a multisystem autoimmune disease which predominantly affects the exocrine glands. pSS may occasionally present in an atypical way which may defy correct diagnosis for a considerable period of time. Clinically important immune-mediated cytopenia (or a combination of cytopenias) may be the first manifestation of an occult SS and have only been rarely described with Sjogren's. This case exemplifies the atypical presentation of pSS and hence should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with unexplained cytopenias.
