Twenty selected patients with recurrent aphthous stomatitis in whom celiac disease had been specifically excluded were placed on a gluten-free diet. Five patients (25%) showed a favorable response to gluten withdrawal and a positive gluten challenge. Jejunal morphology was normal in all patients indicating gluten sensitivity without enteropathy. Gluten withdrawal provides a further method of treating some patients with recurrent aphthous stomatitis.
