Özet

Celiac disease is an immune-mediated enteropathy induced by gluten ingestion in a genetically susceptible patient. It has been associated with various skin lesions but predominantly with dermatitis herpetiformis. Herein, we report another skin lesion, eosinophilic cellulitis, which is an inflammatory dermatitis, in a celiac patient who also had Giardia infestation.
