A patient with adult Still's disease and Sjögren's syndrome failed to respond to conventional doses of corticosteroids. Therefore intravenous pulse methylprednisolone combined with oral cyclophosphamide was given which subsequently resolved the flare of rashes, fevers, and arthritis. This combination therapy may be a useful therapy to consider in patients with adult Still's disease who are resistant to conventional treatment and may allow a reduction in daily corticosteroid requirement.
