Abstract

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorder associated with celiac disease. We reported a case of recurrent bilateral lobe seizures that was associated with profound memory impairment, in patient with celiac disease. In this case MRI did not show typical occipital calcification of celiac disease, but disclosed a bilateral hyppocampal hyperintensity. This a could be a case of comorbidity or on the other hand suggests a possible uncommon ethiopatological relationship between celiac disease and epilepsy.
