Abstract

Three patients with Down syndrome and celiac disease were described. The incidence of celiac disease among patients with Down syndrome was calculated to be 8 per 1,000 live-born cases, a figure 20 times greater than in children without Down syndrome, indicating that it should be kept in mind when examining patients suffering from recurrent diarrhea and/or delayed puberty.
