Diagnosis of celiac disease in pregnancy and puerperium: think about it.

Author information

Department of Obstetrics and Pediatrics, Policlinico Universitario G.Martino, University of Messina, Italy.


We report 10 cases of celiac disease (CD) diagnosed after a pregnancy. During late pregnancy and/or puerperium a latent CD may be unmasked, so patients with mild gastrointestinal symptoms or anemia in pregnancy should be investigated to detect the disease before it might seriously affect maternofetal health.
