Occult celiac disease presenting as epilepsy and MRI changes that responded to gluten-free diet
Elizabeth Harper, MD; Harold Moses, MD; and Andre Lagrange, MD, PhD
Celiac disease (CD), an autoimmune disorder involving hypersensitivity to gluten, has been associated with many neurologic manifestations, most commonly ataxia and neuropathy. We report contrast-enhancing brain lesions and epilepsy in a patient with previously occult CD that responded to a gluten-free diet (GFD).
