The gluten ataxia is one of the commonest neurological manifestations of gluten-related disorders: prevalence was estimated at 15% amongst all ataxias and 40% of all idiopathic sporadic ataxias; its diagnosis should be confirmed by the prsence of anti-gliadin antibodies. Gluten ataxia is, by its management, very peculiar: few etiologies, among the large pannel of childhood ataxias, may respond to dietary treatments. We present an instructive case of gluten ataxia in a teenage girl.
