BACKGROUND Antigliadin antibodies are a marker of untreated coeliac disease but can also be found in individuals with normal small-bowel mucosa. Because neurological dysfunction is a known complication of coeliac disease we have investigated the frequency of antigliadin antibodies, as a measure of cryptic gluten sensitivity, and coeliac disease in neurological patients. METHODS Using ELISA, we estimated serum IgG and IgA antigliadin antibodies in 147 neurological patients who were divided… 
Neurological Dysfunction in Coeliac Disease and Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity
TLDR
The neurological manifestations of CD and NCGS are similar and equally responsive to a GFD suggestive of common pathophysiological mechanisms.
Neurological manifestations of celiac disease.
TLDR
CD should be ruled out in the differential diagnosis of neurological dysfunction of unknown cause, including ataxia, epilepsy and dementia, and a gluten free diet failed to improve the neurological disability.

TLDR
A significant correlation between anti-ganglioside antibodies and neurological disorders in patients with an underlying coeliac disease has been found.
Prevalence of celiac antibodies in children with neurologic disorders.
TLDR
Results did not demonstrate any relationship between common neurologic disorders without a specific diagnosis during childhood and CD, and screening for CD does not need to be routinely included in the diagnostic evaluation of children with these disorders.
The high frequency of coeliac disease among children with neurological disorders
TLDR
It is unable, using indirect immunofluorescence testing, to demonstrate the presence of autoantibodies against brain tissue in CD and AGA‐positive patients, and whether this finding reflects certain immunopathogenic links between CD and particular neurological diseases needs to be studied.
An investigation of the humoral immune response in patients with gluten ataxia.
TLDR
Preliminary findings suggest an immune pathogenesis for gluten ataxia, in common with other manifestations of gluten sensitivity, and preliminary evidence is also suggestive of a T-cell mediated response and the relative contributions of each in the pathogenesis of gluten atAXia remains to be elucidated.
Possible gluten sensitivity in multiple system atrophy
TLDR
The occurrence of gluten sensitivity in a population of MSA patients versus patients affected by idiopathic PD was studied, finding a high frequency in patients with certain neurologic syndromes of unknown etiology.
Gluten-Related Disorders: Gluten Ataxia
TLDR
Evidence suggests that patients with newly diagnosed coeliac disease presenting to the gastroenterologists have abnormal MR spectroscopy at presentation associated with clinical evidence of subtle cerebellar dysfunction, which may protect the first group from the development and/or progression of neurological dysfunction.
Non-Celiac Gluten ( Wheat ) Sensitivity
The term gluten-related disorders (GRD) refers to a spectrum of diverse clinical manifestations triggered by the ingestion of gluten in genetically susceptible individuals. They include both
Neuropathy associated with gluten sensitivity
TLDR
Gluten sensitivity may be aetiologically linked to a substantial number of idiopathic axonal neuropathies associated with positive antigliadin antibodies in a cohort of patients with sporadic axonal Neuropathy.

Coeliac disease in the year 2000: exploring the iceberg
TLDR
Screening in a school district in central Italy can detect large numbers of cases of coeliac disease, which can be treated with a gluten-free diet and would not be detected by screening only a selected group of at-risk patients.
High prevalence of celiac disease in healthy adults revealed by antigliadin antibodies.
TLDR
In the present study, a high IgA antigliadin activity had a positive predictive value between 18% and 25% in individuals without symptoms indicative of celiac disease depending on the way the cut-off points were chosen.
Compliance of adolescents with coeliac disease with a gluten free diet.
A cohort of 123 patients with coeliac disease, diagnosed in the first three years of life and followed up for at least 10 years, was reevaluated during the teenage period in terms of compliance with
Malignancy in coeliac disease--effect of a gluten free diet.
TLDR
The results indicate that for coeliac patients who have taken a GFD for five years or more the risk of developing cancer over all sites is not increased when compared with the general population, and give further support for advising all patients to adhere to a strict G FD for life.
Celiac Disease and Malignancy
TLDR
There was little evidence for the view that malignancy itself was the cause of the flat jejunal mucosal appearances seen in these patients, and the index of suspicion for lymphoma in celiac disease should be high and early laparotomy be considered in patients with unexplained deterioration.
Normal small bowel biopsy followed by coeliac disease.
TLDR
Four patients (two children, one adolescent, and one adult) having normal small bowel mucosa shown on a biopsy specimen taken before the initial diagnosis of coeliac disease was made may exist latent in patients having normal mucosa when eating a normal diet containing gluten.
COELIAC DISEASE AND MALIGNANCY
TLDR
Of 259 histologically confirmed malignancies in 235 patients with histologically proven coeliac disease, 133 were malignant lymphomas, the predominant histological type being malignant histiocytosis and the commonest site of this lesion the small intestine.
