Abstract

Coeliac disease is a malabsorption syndrome induced by the gluten-containing cereals leading to the damage of small intestinal mucosa. A case of a young woman is presented whose coeliac disease became overt in the puerperium. Despite strict adherence to glutenfree diet, her muscle weakness affecting several muscle regions persisted. Following a diagnostic work-up covering numerous co-disciplines, the diagnosis of myasthenia gravis was set up underlying her muscle symptoms. After the thorough review of the corresponding literature, the authors could not find any case report on the association of coeliac disease with myasthenia gravis.
