چکیده    Background: we aimed to investigate the frequency of celiac disease in children with β-thalassemia major (b-tm) in shiraz, southern iran. materials and methods: in this study, the prevalence of celiac disease in children with b-tm was evaluated. children with btm were screened for celiac disease by ant-tissue transglutaminase (anti-ttg) iga antibody, iga level and anti-ttg igg. a total of 1500 school healthy children in shiraz with age/sex matched were selected as control group. results: a total of 215 b-tm patients with mean age of 12.7± 4.4 years, were included into the study (52.1% was male). none of the patients were positive for anti-ttg iga. eight cases were iga deficient in whom antittg igg was investigated but none of them were positive for anti-ttg igg. the finding in control group has a seroprevalence of 2% and biopsy proven disease of 0.6%.conclusion: many patients with thalassemia major have multiple non specific symptom that are not justifiable withunderlying disease and might be due to a typical celiac disease. we didn't find any case of celiacdisease among more than 200 children with β-thalassemia major in shiraz, southern iran. so itseems reasonable to screen only those who have features, even not classical, of celiac disease.
