Persistent monoarthritis and occult coeliac disease.

Abstract

Arthritis is a recognized complication of untreated coeliac disease. Symptoms and signs usually respond to the institution of a gluten-free diet. We report a case of occult coeliac disease presenting as a monoarthritis. Severe and progressive erosive damage has occurred in his talo-navicular joint despite a response to the institution of a gluten-free diet.
