Abstract

A 15-month-old girl with celiac disease presented with microcephaly and developmental delay. Head growth resumed during a gluten-free diet. Subsequent gluten ingestion resulted in no head growth, areflexia, and increased celiac antibodies. All resolved with gluten elimination. Poor head growth may precede other clinical manifestations of celiac disease.
