To the Editor The possible association between celiac disease (CD) and neurologic extraintestinal manifestations has been described in literature since 1966. We read with interest the article by Thawani et al1 showing the increased risk for neuropathy in patients with biopsy-proved CD. The major strengths of this study were the nationwide population-based design and the high statistical power. Nevertheless, we would like to raise some small constructive criticisms.
