Celiac disease (CD), also known as gluten-sensitive enteropathy, is a prevalent auto-immune disorder. The silent form of CD seems to be more frequent than expected. CD has been associated with neurologic and psychiatric disorders, notably cerebellar ataxia, peripheral neuropathy, epilepsy, dementia and depression. Migraine is a rare complication of CD. We report a case of CD revealed by a migraine. Apparently no case of celiac disease revealed by migraine has been reported in the literature.
