Neurologic complications of celiac disease
Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disease triggered by exposure and reaction to gluten, with evidence of enteropathy on small intestinal biopsy. It can lead to an array of clinical symptoms, with up to 22% of patients exhibiting neurologic or psychiatric symptoms, most commonly ataxia and peripheral neuropathy. Rarer complications include epilepsy and myopathy.
