IS occurs in celiac disease. It may be the initial presentation and is associated with abdominal pain. Adenocarcinoma needs to be excluded. The majority of patients do not have recurrent symptoms after adherence to a gluten-free diet. Celiac disease should be considered more frequently when IS is encountered.
