Some case reports have been published suggesting association of celiac disease (CD) with tuberculosis (TB) and with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) but mostly in adult populations and in different patients. We report a 13-year-old girl recently diagnosed with CD presented to pediatric emergency at a tertiary teaching hospital in north India with complaints of generalized weakness, pain and swelling over left lower limb that subsequently was diagnosed to have disseminated TB and left lower limb DVT. She was treated with course of anti-tubercular drugs, short-term anticoagulant therapy, and gluten free diet with positive outcomes over next 3 months. To the best of authors' knowledge, no previous reports have yet suggested a coexistence of disseminated TB and peripheral deep vein thrombosis and CD in one single pediatric patient.
