Abstract

Celiac disease is known for its classic clinical manifestations such as anemia and diarrhea. Liver involvement in celiac disease has been studied for more than thirty years. We review different etiologies of liver diseases and their possible association with celiac disease and seek to define in which situations serological screening should be performed.
