It has been suggested that coeliac disease (CD) is associated with several neurological diseases. However, the evidence of such an association is inconclusive as earlier research has often been based on small numbers with retrospective data collection. 
No association between biopsy‐verified celiac disease and subsequent amyotrophic lateral sclerosis – a population‐based cohort study
TLDR
This data indicates an association between amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and autoimmune disease, but data on its association with celiac disease (CD) are limited.
The burden of celiac disease and the value of having it diagnosed
TLDR
A small number of patients diagnosed with celiac disease have shown an intolerance to gluten that is similar to that of a food allergy, and these patients are referred to a gluten-free clinic for further studies.
Persistent mucosal damage and risk of epilepsy in people with celiac disease
TLDR
This study investigated whether persistent VA on follow-up biopsy affected long‐term epilepsy risk and epilepsy‐related hospital emergency admissions in patients with CD.
6 Multiple Sclerosis and Celiac Disease
Celiac disease (CD) has traditionally been thought of as a primarily intestinal disorder, and is now considered the most important autoimmune disease related to gluten intolerance (gluten-sensitive
Multiple Sclerosis and Celiac Disease
Celiac disease (CD) has traditionally been thought of as a primarily intestinal disorder, and is now considered the most important autoimmune disease related to gluten intolerance (gluten-sensitive
A Case of Multiple Sclerosis and Celiac Disease
TLDR
It is suggested that MS patients with gastroenterological complaints should undergo an assessment for celiac disease, as in the case of a 45-year-old female MS patient who is under interferon treatment.
Neurological complications of coeliac disease: what is the evidence?
TLDR
This review uses an evidence-based approach to critically assess this literature and provides guidelines for the evaluation and management of patients with neurological complications of coeliac disease.
Morbidity and Mortality Associated with Celiac Disease
TLDR
It is important that comorbidities are identified; otherwise, symptoms may be falsely attributed to CD in relapse rather than prompt a search for another diagnosis, and in a patient with an established diagnosis, CD may be overlooked.
Recent advances in celiac disease.
TLDR
A number of important and exciting recent developments, such as clinical associations, HLA-DQ2 and HLA -DQ8 predispositions, the concept of potential celiac disease, the use of new imaging/endoscopy techniques, and the development of refractory disease are considered.
Celiac Disease, Beyond the Bowel: A Review of Its Neurological Manifestations
TLDR
Various studies that have explored the neurological manifestations of celiac disease, their epidemiology, possible pathogenic mechanisms, diagnosis, and treatment are compiled.

Neurological complications of coeliac disease
TLDR
A review attempts to summarise the literature and suggests directions for future research on malabsorption, which does not satisfactorily explain the pathophysiology and clinical course of many of the associated neurological disorders.
Multiple sclerosis and celiac disease: is there an increased risk?
TLDR
Different immune and genetic basis between the two diseases may represent crucial insights to explain the results of this study.
Coeliac Disease Presenting with Neurological Disorders
TLDR
Screening for coeliac disease with serological antibody tests helps to find patients who may suffer from this disease and detect those who were detected because of neurological symptoms.
Multifocal axonal polyneuropathy in celiac disease
TLDR
Five patients with multifocal axonal polyneuropathy did not improve or had only modest improvement following dietary intervention or immune therapies; one patient with marked weakness and mild electrodiagnostic findings had complete resolution of the neuropathy following immunomodulatory therapy.
Multiple sclerosis and occult gluten sensitivity
TLDR
Two atypical patients with a multiple sclerosis (MS)–like illness and evidence of occult celiac disease (CD) were managed and IgG anti-gliadin antibody was found in 12% of patients and 13% of blood donors.

Neurological Complications of Celiac Disease and Autoimmune Mechanisms: Preliminary Data of a Prospective Study in Adult Patients
TLDR
Preliminary results of this prospective study indicate that neuropathy, usually subclinical, may accompany celiac disease and antibody titers do not seem to correlate with neurological symptoms/signs or diet.
Brain white-matter lesions in celiac disease: a prospective study of 75 diet-treated patients.
TLDR
Focal white-matter lesions in the brain may represent an extraintestinal manifestation of CD, which is considered to be a state of heightened immunologic responsiveness to ingested gluten proteins in genetically predisposed individuals.
Neurologic presentation of celiac disease.
TLDR
It has been suggested that gluten sensitivity (as evidenced by high antigliadin antibodies) is a common cause of neurologic syndromes (notably cerebellar ataxia) of otherwise unknown cause and further studies clearly are needed to assess the efficacy of gluten-free diet and to address the underlying mechanisms of nervous system pathology in gluten sensitivity.
Antigliadin antibodies in Huntington’s disease
TLDR
The authors found high antigliadin antibody titers in 23 of 52 patients with Huntington’s disease (HD), suggesting a previously unrecognized association between HD and gluten sensitivity, and raises the possibility that antIGliadin antibodies in ataxia and other neurodegenerative diseases may be an epiphenomenon.
