Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This study is included that 35 volunteer patients(18-65 ages) diagnosed with primary Sjögren's syndrome by the Rheumatology clinic. Audiometry, Tympanometry, stapes reflex, VHIT (video head impulse test), cVEMP (cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potentials), and oVEMP (ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials) tests will be performed to patients following the ear-nose-throat examination. None of these tests are invasive tests. These tests keep on approximately 45 minutes.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 319154 0
Detection of sensorineural hearing loss in the patients. The audiometry, tympanometry and stapes reflex tests will be used for this examination.
Timepoint [1] 319154 0
After ear nose throat examination, the hearing test of the individuals will be performed by the audiologist.
Secondary outcome [1] 367024 0
In order to detection of vestibular pathology, balance test (VEMP, VHIT) will be performed to individuals. Especially, it is important that the waves of VEMP are not obtained or detecting the increased latency time of waves or detection of asymmetric in semicircular canal's gain.
Timepoint [1] 367024 0
After the hearing test, the balance test of the individuals will be performed by the audiologist.

Summary
Brief summary
This study is included that 35 volunteer patients diagnosed with primary Sjogren's syndrome by the Rheumatology and 35 healthy volunteers with similar age and gender as a control group. Audiometry, Tympanometry, stapes reflex, VHIT (video head impulse test), cVEMP (cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potentials), and oVEMP (ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials) tests will be performed following the ear-nose-throat examination. None of these tests are invasive tests.
As a result of this study, hearing and balance functions in patients with primary Sjogren diagnosis will be examined in comparison with the control group.
