Optic neuritis is known as a neurologic manifestation of systemic autoimmune diseases, particularly in Sjögren’s syndrome. Coexisting Sjögren’s syndrome has been reported in 2% to 30% of patients with neuromyelitis optica.Optic neuritis has been associated with Sjögren’s syndrome. Serology examination of aquaporin-4 antibody should be done to confirm the diagnosis of neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD). We report a case of optic neuritis in Sjögren’s syndrome patient with chief complaint of intermittent blurred and dark vision on both eyes. The patient were suspected of having NMOSD. Result of SS-A antibody level was 161 unit (normal level <11 unit) whereas SS-B antibody level was normal.
