Introduction: The clinical features of celiac disease vary. Common classic signs and symptoms include diarrhea, weight loss, and abdominal distention. Celiac as a systemic disease may suffer people of all ages and with many races and ethnic groups.Celiac disease also has other symptoms that got less attention.These signs are constipation, bloating, oral plague, bone pain, anemia, Vitiligo, hypocalcemia, hypothyroidism and seizures.  In this study, it was decided to evaluate the prevalence of gastrointestinal and non-gastrointestinal clinical signs of celiac disease.
Methods: This descriptive study was conducted on 150 patients with celiac disease referred to Khatamolanbiya Clinic in 2014.The gastrointestinal and non-gastrointestinal clinical signs of the patients were studied. Patients with celiac disease were included who had both positive tissue anti-transglutaminase antibodies and some degree of mucosal atrophy on duodenal mucosal endoscopy. After collecting the data, the coded information was entered into SPSS version 22 software and the results were analyzed using Chi-Square, T and Wilcoxon tests.
Results: The results showed that celiac disease in the study was 1.3 times more frequently in women than men. As well as the symptoms of anemia in the population studied (40.67%) had the highest and seizures (0.67%) had the lowest rates. After anemia, hypothyroidism with 26% prevalence was the most prevalent in the community. Diarrhea with 24.7% is the mostcommon in gastrointestinal symptoms   and is the third most common after anemia and hypothyroidism.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that non-gastrointestinal symptoms (bone pain, anemia, vitiligo, hypocalcaemia, hypothyroidism, and seizures) are more common than gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, steatorrhea, weight loss, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, bloating, and oral thrush in patients with celiac disease.
