There is a growing interest in the extra-intestinal manifestations of common pediatric gastrointestinal diseases such as IBD and celiac disease. This chapter specifically focuses on the neurological symptoms that manifest as a result of these disorders and their treatments. Many neurologic symptoms have been reported in association with these diseases, including neuropathy, myopathy, ataxia, headache and seizure, among others. It is currently believed that these neurologic symptoms are largely overlooked by practitioners and could be of potential use for earlier diagnosis of disease. However, additional research, especially in the pediatric population, is warranted to further elaborate on the causality and pathophysiology of these neurologic symptoms.
