Severe iron deficiency anaemia as a manifestation of silent coeliac disease: case report and literature review.
J Fam Health Care. 2010; 20(2):56-9.JF

Abstract

Coeliac disease (CD) occurs in individuals sensitive to gluten protein contained in wheat products. It affects at least 1:100 children and may present with extra-intestinal manifestations such as iron deficiency anaemia, short stature and delay in puberty. A case of severe iron deficiency anaemia as a manifestation of CD is described here. There is a need to raise awareness among health professionals about CD and its extra-intestinal presentations. Suspicion of CD should lead to antibody screening tests and positive results should be followed by an intestinal biopsy for a definitive diagnosis. Involvement of a paediatric dietitian is vital in the management of CD and lifelong adherence to a gluten-free diet is necessary. We hope this article leaves the reader with a heightened awareness about CD and will lead to appropriate early referral to the paediatric services.
