Abstract

We describe a case of a 28-year-old woman affected by celiac disease (CD) associated with rare multiple disorders of the cutaneous pigmentary system: atypical mole syndrome and congenital giant naevus. Some other rare skin lesions have been reported in association with celiac disease such as cutaneous sarcoidosic granuloma, bullous pemphigoid, ichthyosis, alopecia areata, erythema elevatum diutinum, sclero-atrophic lichen and primary cutaneous amyloidosis. This is the 1st report concerning celiac disease and congenital disorders of the pigmentary system.
