Interstitial nephritis and immune complex-mediated glomerulonephritis are the two common renal manifestations of primary Sjögren's syndrome (SS).

The possibility of an underlying autoimmune disorder should be considered in a patient presenting with distal tubular acidosis or recurrent hypokalemic periodic paralysis as treatment of primary disease improves the outcome of illness.
