GLAUSIUSS, GABRIELA et al. Síndrome de enfermedad celíaca, calcificaciones cerebrales y epilepsia: Primer caso nacional. Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2002, vol.73, n.1, pp.10-14. ISSN 1688-1249.

The syndrome of coeliac disease, cerebral calcifications and epilepsy, is a rare complication of the coeliac disease. The typical curse includes three stages leading to a severe encephalopathy. The pathogenetic process is until the unknown; main clues involve a chronic folic acid deficiency or HLA-related autoimmune disorder. Treatment requires early gluten-free diet and antiepileptic drugs. We report on the first patient in Uruguay with manifestations of syndrome coeliac disease, cerebral calcifications and epilepsy.
