Celiac disease (CD) is a common, life-long, autoimmune condition, affecting the small intestine of genetically susceptible individuals. The classical clinical picture is disappearing as awareness progresses and the extra-intestinal presentation is emerging. Skin, endocrine, hepatic, skeletal, hematological, gynecological, infertility, dental, and behavioral abnormalities are emerging. Among the new growing domains is the extra-intestinal presentation of CD affecting the peripheral and central neurological systems. This review highlights neurological presentations in these patients, focusing on the clinical signs/symptoms in the pediatric and the adult age group, separately.
