Abstract

Chilblains, or pernio, are cutaneous lesions that may accompany systemic illnesses including states of malnutrition and autoimmune diseases. We report an adolescent girl in whom chilblains were the chief presenting sign of celiac disease. A gluten-free diet led to weight gain and resolution of the chilblains. We speculate that in this patient, weight loss due to celiac disease contributed to the development of chilblains.
