We present a female patient affected by the triple association of rheumatoid arthritis, amyloidosis and Sicca Syndrome. The individual pathological features are well documented. We discussed the rarity of this presentation and some pecularities of the case such as the presence of a true Sicca Syndrome with lymphoid infiltration of the salivary glands to distinguish it from other amyloid patients with Sicca Syndrome due to the infiltration of exocrine gland by amyloid.
