Coeliac disease and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) individually are not uncommon in children, but the occurrence of both conditions together is rare. The combined presentation of coeliac disease and IBD in a girl of 7 years is presented with a review of the related literature. The occurrence of coeliac disease with IBD should be considered at the time of diagnosis and at relapse, or where there is difficulty maintaining remission in established IBD. Screening with serum antibody tests may be helpful.
