Abstract

Celiac disease is a genetically determined gluten-sensitive auto-immune condition, mainly an enteropathy resulting in nutrient malabsorption. Its intestinal damages, with lymphocytic gastroduodenitis, can also be due to a myriad of gastro-intestinal infections that act as true "triggering agents". We present two pediatric patients with infectious associations leading to a transient positive celiac disease serology, with various agents and different genetic suscpetibility.
