Abstract

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).
