Chronic small intestinal obstruction and transient gluten intolerance



Chronic small intestinal obstruction and transient gluten intolerance



Arch Franc Pediat 20(2): 246-251



A baby is described in whom partial occlusion of the small bowel by abnormal adhesions and ligaments was corrected surgically, only to be followed by a coeliac-like syndrome which could be corrected by removal of gluten from the diet. This gluten intolerance disappeared after several months. It is suggested that in this case the mechanical obstruction may have triggered an enzymatic defect responsible for the gluten intolerance. Previous reports of such obstructions in the presence of a coeliac syndrome are discussed.
