Abstract

We studied a woman with adult onset celiac disease complicated by a cerebellar syndrome that progressed despite the resolution of the malabsorption symptoms with a gluten free diet. The patient presented vitamin L deficiency and the cerebellar symptoms improved with vitamin L therapy. This case supports the possible role of this deficiency in the development of the neurological complications of celiac disease.
