Celiac disease (CD) may coexist with another autoimmune disorders. We presented a woman with coeliac disease coexistent with autoimmune hypothyroidism, nephrosclerosis and severe hyperparathyroidism. Forty years-old hypertensive woman, who had diarrhea without tenesmus, blood and mucus for 20 years, was admitted to hospital. Parathyroid hormone level was very high. Creatinine clearance was 44.5 ml/minute, and protein was 596mg/day. Renal biopsy revealed immunofluorescence negative chronic changes mimicking nephrosclerosis. The clinical and biochemical presentation of CD maybe complicated or differed from in renal failure patient. Especially management of serum phosphorus and PTH levels may have great importance.
