Study Title
Gluten sensitivity as a neurological illness
Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry

M Hadjivassiliou, R A Grünewald and G A B Davies-Jones


It has taken nearly 2000 years to appreciate that a common dietary protein introduced to the human diet relatively late in evolutionary terms (some 10 000 years ago), can produce human disease not only of the gut but also the skin and the nervous system. The protean neurological manifestations of gluten sensitivity can occur without gut involvement and neurologists must therefore become familiar with the common neurological presentations and means of diagnosis of this disease.
