Rapidly Progressive Cerebellar Ataxia in a Case of Unsuspected Celiac Disease: Early Diagnosis Leads to Reversibility
July 05, 2018 | Arvind Vyas, Divya Goel
Subacute late-onset cerebellar ataxia in a patient can be due to varied causes. The common ones are infectious, drug-related,
autoimmune and paraneoplastic pathologies. As majority of these causes are deemed treatable, they should be investigated
in a sporadic case of ataxia. Celiac disease can have neurological complications in about 10% of cases but those are usually
a secondary feature of this disease. This case report features a case of rapidly progressive cerebellar ataxia as the sole
presentation of unsuspected celiac disease.
