Abstract: Celiac disease is an immune-mediated chronic intestinal disease that causes atrophy of the intestinal mucosa by ingestion of gluten and related proteins in genetically susceptible individuals. Presentation of the illness can differ from a severe malabsorption to mild symptomatic and even asymptomatic. The only treatment for celiac disease is to follow a strict gluten-free diet for life and it is not a cure. A 37-year-old female patient was followed up with the diagnoses of irritable bowel syndrome and dyspepsia applied to our outpatient clinic with severe malabsorption symptoms. She was diagnosed as celiac disease. Celiac disease should be questioned in all patients presenting with dyspeptic complaints. With a simple treatment, the quality of life increases significantly.
