Background and purpose: Celiac disease (CD) is a genetic disorder that causes inflammation in the lining of the small intestine. Recent literature has shown a relation between inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease. This study aimed at determining the prevalence of celiac disease in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC). Material and Methods: In this cross-sectional study 84 patients (aged 17-79 years of old) with UC underwent screening test for CD. Anti TTG Ab and Total IgA Ab were checked for all patients Results: The mean age of the patients was 39.26±13.29 years. In all cases Anti TTG and Total IgA Ab were negative. Conclusion: In this study we found no association between CD and UC. However, more studies with larger sample size are recommended to find the exact relation between these diseases.
