Primary infertility as a rare presentation of celiac disease.
Fertil Steril 2010; 94(7):2771.e5-7FS

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To report a case of a woman presenting with primary infertility who on investigation was found to have celiac disease and had a successful conception when on a gluten-free diet for a period of 8 months.

DESIGN

Case report.

SETTING

Tertiary care university hospital.

PATIENT(S)

A 30-year-old female patient with primary infertility.

INTERVENTION(S)

Gluten-free diet.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S)

Successful pregnancy.

RESULT(S)

On investigation she had microcytic hypochromic anemia and high titers of IgA tissue transglutaminase. Duodenal biopsy was done and histology was suggestive of celiac disease. The patient was put on gluten-free diet. Eight months later she had a successful conception.

CONCLUSION(S)

We suggest that celiac disease should be checked in infertile patients of unexplainable etiology with anemia, as just changing their diet can solve their fertility problem.
