Celiac disease (CD) is a malabsorptive condition of the small intestine that presents clinically with episodic or nocturnal diarrhea, flatulence and weight loss . It has been increasingly recognized that CD does not always present in the traditional fashion but instead may present with elevated hepatic transaminase level  or with iron deficiency anemia, growth retardation, osteoporosis, infertility and menstrual disturbances . CD results from an inappropriate T-cell mediated response against ingested gluten. CD frequently is associated with autoimmune diseases including diabetes mellitus, autoimmune thyroid diseases, Sjögren’s syndrome, autoimmune hepatitis, autoimmune atrophic gastritis and Addison’s disease . The association of CD and hepatitis C is not established presently. We present three cases of CD with hepatitis C as case series.
