INTRODUCTION: Celiac disease is a pathology which is rarely associated with thrombosis complications. Cerebral vascular thrombosis has never been described in patients with a celiac disease.

OBSERVATION: We report an observation of a 21-year-old girl with a history of celiac disease who was hospitalized in the intensive care unit for convulsive status epilepticus secondary to a cerebral venous thrombosis. The etiologic investigation of this thrombo-embolic complication revealed protein S deficit. Our patient improved under symptomatic treatment.

COMMENT: This original observation confirms that celiac disease can be associated with cerebral venous thrombosis.
