Abstract
Although the association of celiac disease with autoimmune hepatitis is well-known, the effect of gluten-free diet on autoimmune hepatitis progression is poorly deafined. We described a patient with celiac disease coexisting with autoimmune hepatitis and effectiveness of gluten-free diet on both diseases.
A young patient with eleveted serum liver transaminases was diagnosed as celiac disease and autoimmune hepatitis according to clinical, laboratory and pathological findings. Clinical complaints and laboratory findings of patients resolved exactly after gluten-free diet. However, liver transaminases eleveted and clinical manifestations re-emerged when he left the diet.
Clinicians should consider that other autoimmune diseases may occur in the course celiac disease and gluten-free diet may improve also extra-intestinal manifestations of celiac disease.

Key words: Celiac Disease;Hepatitis;Autoimmune;Diet;Gluten-Free
