Hello.... A positive result for SS-A/Ro antibodies is consistent with connective tissue disease, including Sjogren syndrome, lupus erythematosus (LE), or rheumatoid arthritis.basically these antibodies are present in the autoimmune conditions. Result may show false positive for test. Based on the symptoms one can diagnose the condition.
