abstract

  • The authors report six patients with multifocal axonal polyneuropathy and the subsequent diagnosis of celiac disease (CD). Five patients did not improve or had only modest improvement following dietary intervention or immune therapies; one patient with marked weakness and mild electrodiagnostic findings had complete resolution of the neuropathy following immunomodulatory therapy. CD may be a cause of multifocal axonal polyneuropathy.
