Abstract

Central or peripheral nervous system complications are occasionally observed in adult patients with celiac disease. Several mechanisms havebeen proposed including vitamin deficiency, vascular inflammation anda direct effect of gluten intolerance. Typical nerve fiber damage dueto demyelinization. has been suggested. We observed a 65-year old woman with a right peroneal nerve palsy superimposed on a diffuse peripheral neuropathy who was found to have folic acid deficiency which in turn led to the diagnosis of adult celiac disease. Electrophysiological and histological studies demonstrated a predominantly demyelinating peripheral neuropathy which responded first to parenteral folic acid supplementation and second to a gluten-free diet. The mechanisms of peripheral nerve damage in adult celiac disease are briefly discussed and the possible role of folic acid deficiency is emphasized.
