We would like to thank Dr. Panchovska for her comments on our editorial1, which was motivated by the work of Sharma, et al2, who reported patients with sicca (100%) and other symptoms such as arthralgia (82%) and constitutional symptoms (43%) among others, in whom the presence of anti-Ro/SSA antibodies allowed a diagnosis of Sjögren syndrome (SS) despite a negative minor salivary gland (MSG) biopsy [i.e., focus score (FS) = 0].
