BACKGROUND: Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is a diagnosis that is increasingly being reported. Psychiatric symptoms can be a rare but serious manifestation of this new clinical entity. CASE REPORT: A 13-year-old girl consulted the paediatrician with abdominal pain, diarrhoea, bloating, and compulsive thoughts and fears; these disappeared on a gluten-free diet. Celiac disease and wheat allergy were excluded. Double-blind placebo-controlled gluten challenge confirmed the diagnosis NCGS. CONCLUSION: Consider a diagnosis of NCGS in patients with psychiatric symptoms in combination with abdominal symptoms.
