Abstract

It has been known that there is a more than fortuitous association between coeliac disease and a whole range of autoimmune conditions. At present there are only very small numbers of cases reported with childhood coeliac disease and thyroiditis. The Authors refer to a seven year old girl with documented coeliac disease who developed an autoimmune thyroiditis with glandular hypofunction, an unusual feature still rarely described.
