Abstract

In nine children with severe cerebral palsy (CP), feeding difficulties and poor development of weight and height, laboratory markers for metabolic and enteral dysfunction were studied.

CONCLUSION:

Four of the nine patients with CP had increased levels of antigliadin antibodies AGA (IgA), a finding which calls for further studies concerning the possible connection between increased celiac markers and CP.
