Celiac disease (CD) is a multisystem chronic inflammatory disorder with an autoimmune component in genetically susceptible individuals elicited by gluten and related prolamines. CD is becoming a common disorder arising at any age with a broad spectrum of symptoms ranging from intestinal to extraintestinal manifestations. Extraintestinal symptoms being more common after 2 years of life, can affect various systems and organs of the body. Knowledge of the extraintestinal manifestations of celiac disease is of utmost importance for the diagnosis of CD. Owing to the high risk of complications among the undiagnosed cases of CD, patients with extraintestinal manifestations should undergo appropriate diagnosis and treatment for CD.
