Celiac disease is an immune mediated enteropathy due to irreversible gluten sensitivity. It has protean manifestations involving gastrointestinal (GI) as well as non GI manifestations. Calcifications in the cerebral cortex are well defined entity in celiac disease known as CEC syndrome (Celiac disease, Epilepsy and Cerebral Calcification). Calcification has not been described in any other organ. Splenic calcifications are a rare manifestation in childhood. The authors are reporting a case of celiac disease with multiple foci of calcification in the spleen without evidence of cerebral calcification.
