Cerebellar syndrome in adult celiac disease with vitamin E deficiency.

Author information

Neurological Clinic II, University of Turin, Italy.


We studied a woman with adult onset celiac disease complicated by a cerebellar syndrome that progressed despite the resolution of the malabsorption symptoms with a gluten free diet. The patient presented vitamin E deficiency and the cerebellar symptoms improved with vitamin E therapy. This case supports the possible role of this deficiency in the development of the neurological complications of celiac disease.
