Abstract

Liver injury in celiac disease may evolve from reactive hepatitis to autoimmune hepatitis. Our case is a reactive hepatitis evolves parallel with celiac disease activity. If the patient does not follow the gluten free diet both manifestations of celiac disease and reactive hepatitis will appear. Reactive hepatitis manifestations can be rectified after 6-12 months of gluten-free diet.
