A history of asthma, hay fever, and flexural eczema was significantly more common in patients with adult coeliac disease (A.C.D.) than in normal controls. Autoantibodies were also more common in A.C.D. First-degree relatives of A.C.D. patients were more likely than controls to have atopic disorders. A deficiency of local mucosal immunity due to abnormal IgA responses may underly this association between A.C.D. and atopy.
