Abstract

Plummer-Vinson syndrome (PVS) comprises a triad of iron deficiency anemia, dysphagia and esophageal webs. Its occurrence in association with celiac disease which presents as iron deficiency anemia, has rarely been reported [1, 2]. We describe a 59-year-old female with PVS whose iron-deficiency anemia was due to celiac disease.
