Ninety children and adolescents with autoimmune thyroid disease were screened for celiac disease. All 90 patients were typed for HLA antigen class I and II and for HLA-DQA1 and DQB1 heterodimers. Celiac disease and DQA1*0501, DQB1*02 were found in 7 (7.8%) patients. The prevalence of celiac disease was 1 of 13.
