Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Gluten enteropathy (celiac disease) is a chronic disease and presents as diarrhea, weight loss and anemia.

CASE PRESENTATION:

A 35-year-old Caucasian man with gluten enteropathy, familial multiple lipomas and seborrheic keratosis was seen in our clinic. After confirmation of the diagnosis, he was advised to follow a gluten-free diet. His clinical improvement was evaluated and confirmed with biopsy.

CONCLUSION:

Celiac disease is known to be associated with many systemic diseases and skin lesions but its association with familial multiple lipomas has not yet been reported.
