Preview

Neurological involvement of celiac disease is a controversial topic and estimated to occur in 6-10% of patients. Cerebellar (‘gluten’) ataxia and peripheral sensory neuropathy are the most common neurological manifestations of celiac disease. In this chapter, we review the multiple neurological manifestations of celiac disease, the utility of available diagnostic serologic tests, and the variable therapeutic responses to gluten restriction diets.
