Celiac Disease (CD) is an autoimmune enteropathy triggered by the ingestion of gluten in genetically susceptible individuals. Although classic symptoms of CD primarily involve the gastrointestinal tract, extra-intestinal symptoms are common as well. In this review, we examine psychiatric disorders that occur in association with CD, examine pathophysiological mechanisms that may be responsible for these comorbid conditions, and suggest areas of research that could both improve our understanding and reveal potential new treatments for these psychiatric disorders.
