Abstract

We report the association of celiac disease and alopecia in 3 children. In one, the alopecia developed after 4 years' nonadherence to a gluten-free diet; the other 2 patients presented with alopecia. Administration of a gluten-free diet resulted in partial regrowth of hair in the first child and complete hair growth in the others.
