The authors describe a case of Williams syndrome-Coeliac Disease that they have observed at the age of three years and 10/12. There are few reports in the literature. We focus on the variability of clinical and biochemical aspects of Williams Disease and the necessity for an adequate gastroenterologic follow-up (anti-gliadine antibody and anti-endomisium antibody) in these patients with little growth in terms of weight and height and intestinal alterations present in superior measure in companion with the reported standards for the same syndrome.
