Coeliac disease is a chronic immune-mediated disorder that primarily affects the gastrointestinal tract. There is an inflammatory response in the intestine to the ingestion of gluten which improves with a gluten-free diet. Many patients, especially adults, may be asymptomatic or have only extraintestinal symptoms at onset without any of the classical coeliac symptoms. In the last two decades there have been increasing numbers of reports describing neurological complications of coeliac disease… 
Celiac disease: From pathophysiology to treatment
TLDR
The most recent data concerning epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, available diagnostic tests and therapeutic management of celiac disease are reviewed.
Celiac Disease: Its Many Faces and Relevance to Developmental Disabilities
TLDR
There is evidence for an association between CD and early cognitive decline or dementia in the general population and in people with developmental disabilities.
Celiac Disease in Adults
TLDR
Seronegative CD is likely to be underestimated due to the tendency to perform small intestinal biopsies only in patients with positive celiac disease serum markers, and a systematic follow-up approach be adopted.
Celiac Disease Presenting with Peripheral Neuropathy in Children: A Case Report
TLDR
It is suggested that CD should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy in children, even in the absence of gastrointestinal manifestations, because a good knowledge of the extra-intestinal manifestations of CD is essential for the rapid introduction of a gluten-free diet that could be useful for the resolution of the neurological symptoms.
A Case of Concurrent Multiple Sclerosis and Celiac Disease
TLDR
The combined presence of MS andCD is a rare situation for which previous studies have failed to clarify the existence of any correlation between MS and CD, and further investigation of CD in MS patients with gastroenterological complaints is recommended.
Celiac disease: diagnosis and management.
TLDR
Diagnosis is supported by a positive tissue transglutaminase serologic test but, in general, should be confirmed by a small bowel biopsy showing the characteristic histology associated with celiac disease.
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 Manifestations of Celiac Disease in Children and Adults
TLDR
This review highlights neurological presentations in patients with Celiac disease, focusing on the clinical signs/symptoms in the pediatric and the adult age group, separately.
[Polyneuropathies in intestinal diseases].
TLDR
Different aspects of polyneuropathies (PN) developed due to the deficit of group B vitamins in intestinal diseases are considered and possibilities of clinical and paraclinical diagnosis of these disorders are analyzed.
A Neurological Appearance of Celiac Disease: Is There Any Associated Factor?
TLDR
Data from this study contributes to data suggesting that female sex, mild histopathological form, and human leukocyte antigen DQ2 heterozygosity are related to neurological manifestations, and also human leukaemia antigen D Q2heterozygosity is associated with headache in celiac disease.

Should coeliac disease be considered in the work up of patients with chronic peripheral neuropathy?
TLDR
The results of both the clinical study and the literature review suggest that it is unlikely that chronic peripheral neuropathy without other neurological signs is associated with coeliac disease.
Coeliac disease and epilepsy.
TLDR
Coeliac disease appears to occur with increased frequency in patients with epilepsy, and a high index of suspicion should be maintained.

Celiac disease and idiopathic cerebellar ataxia
TLDR
Two recent studies have shown a high frequency of serologic evidence of gluten sensitivity with or without histologicevidence of CD in patients with idiopathic cerebellar ataxia (ICA), and in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms or malabsorption signs.
Celiac disease presenting with motor neuropathy: Effect of gluten free‐diet
TLDR
In both patients with celiac disease a gluten‐free diet induced a significant improvement of muscle strength and neurophysiological abnormalities, suggesting a direct pathogenetic role of sensitivity to gluten.
Overview and pathogenesis of celiac disease.
TLDR
The proportion of individuals presenting with more dramatic symptoms of diarrhea, severe weight loss, and malnutrition is decreasing when compared with those presenting with mild or minimal symptoms or asymptomatic individuals in which disease is discovered only when investigating nongastrointestinal symptoms.
The many faces of celiac disease: clinical presentation of celiac disease in the adult population.
TLDR
There is a need for screening studies of patients with conditions associated with celiac disease to determine whether the large numbers of people with undiagnosed Celiac disease currently are seeking health care.
Association between Coeliac Disease, Epilepsy and Brain Atrophy
TLDR
Prevalence of CD was increased among patients with epilepsy of unknown aetiology, but the combination of CD, epilepsy and intracranial posterior calcifications was rare in Finnish adult epilepsy population.
