Association with Other Diseases
Reports on the association of coeliac sprue with other diseases have regularly been published (56, 764). The fact that some coeliacs suffer from concomitant diseases is as such not strange. The incidence of some conditions, however, exceeds that in the remainder of the population. A well-known example of this is the association of coeliac sprue with dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) (57, 106, 287, 296, 557, 560, 849). The association between coeliac sprue and other diseases is much less pronounced, but the possibility of a certain relation between these diseases and coeliac sprue is still open for the time being.
