abstract

  • Cerebellar degeneration has been associated with gluten sensitivity and celiac disease. Patients with celiac disease may have neuropathy and antibodies to gangliosides. The authors investigated the presence of antiganglioside antibodies in 22 patients with hereditary and nonhereditary ataxia and found 64% reactive in a novel agglutination test.
