Özet

One of the causes of chronic diarrhea in the elderly is Celiac disease, which is an autoimmune disease that particularly common in children and young adults as well as among the elderly population. Diagnosis is often delayed due to atypical presentation in the elderly. There are only a few studies in the literature linking Celiac disease to inflammatory bowel disease. In the present study, we aimed to draw attention to the rare coexistence of Celiac disease and Crohn’s disease presenting with chronic diarrhea and severe malnutrition in a geriatric patient.
