Celiac sprue presenting during the puerperium: a report of three cases and a review of the literature.

Author information

Department of Internal Medicine C, Kaplan Medical Center, Rehovot, Israel.


We present three patients in whom there was an acute presentation of malabsorption in the puerperium and in whom the final diagnosis was celiac sprue. The reason for the dramatic increase in the symptoms after delivery, as well as the absence of symptoms before this, is unclear but may be related to immunologic changes that occur during pregnancy.
