Introduction:

Rheumatic affections constitute a group of diseases that, in addition to affecting the locomotor system, also affect other organs and organ systems, which generates functional disability and a decrease in the perception of quality of life; these conditions include Sjögren's syndrome.

Descriptive, retrospective study with a mixed approach; universe of 457 patients diagnosed with Sjögren's syndrome. Sample made up of 417 patients, the Coop / Wonca slide questionnaire was applied to determine the perception of quality of life and the Cuban version of the Health Assessment Questionnaire to determine functional capacity. Pearson's correlation coefficient was used to determine association between the study variables.

Results:

The perception score in the global quality of life was 21.78% and the most affected dimensions were pain, social and daily activities; being different between both sexes.

Conclusions:

there was a strong positive correlation between the presence of functional disability and health-related quality of life scores; the higher the disability scores, the worse the perception of quality of life of the patients.
