Abstract

We report a thirteen year-old girl with symptomatic hypocalcemia secondary to celiac disease. Serum vitamin D levels [25OH-VitD3 and 24,25(OH)2-VitD3] were low, whereas 1,25(OH)2D3 and PTH levels were higher than normal. Shortly after introducing a gluten-free diet, the patient became asymptomatic, regaining normal growth and pubertal development and serum calcium levels returned to normal.
