Abstract

Background and aims: Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune enteropathy. The disease may be presented with extraintestinal manifestations including neurological findings. Epilepsy and ataxia are well known neurological disorders in CD. But there are very limited numbers of reports on sensory-neural hearing loss in CD in the literature. The aim of this study was to investigate the hearing functions in children with newly diagnosed CD.
