Abstract

Introduction  Coeliac disease (CD) is an autoimmune enteropathy triggered by gluten. Several hepatic disorders have been described in association with coeliac disease. Nodular regenerative hyperplasia (NRH) of the liver is a rare disorder and is a cause of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension.   Case report  A 22 y/o lady presented with portal hypertension, after all causes of chronic liver disease ruled out we checked for coeliac and it was positive. Liver biopsy was done and was compatible with nodular regenerative hyperplasia (NRH) of the liver.  Conclusion  As far as we know this is one of the rare cases of nodular regenerative hyperplasia of the liver in a patient with coeliac. Only three cases have been reported until now and seems we should think about coeliac in any patient suffering from chronic liver disease with unknown cause.
