Atypical coeliac disease in young children is frequently missed when it presents atypically as non-gastrointestinal presentations to different specialties. There was a greater delay (54 months) in establishing the diagnosis in those with atypical coeliac disease (p < 0.001). No difference was observed in the mode of delivery or duration of breast feeding, but significant difference was observed between gestational age at birth (p < 0.001). Most cases showed stunted growth and underweight. Irritability, anaemia, rickets, dermatitis herpetiformis, alopecia and intussusception were other common predictors of atypical coeliac disease. Because of a myriad spectrum of non-gastrointestinal symptoms, at any age with diverse presentation, a high index of suspicion is therefore required.

We included 150 children aged 2-12 years with Autism Spectrum Disorders and normal serum total IgA levels, and screened them for celiac disease using anti-tissue transglutaminase IgA levels. All the children were screen negative, suggesting lack of positive association between Autism Spectrum Disorders and Celiac disease.
