To the Editor,

My colleagues should be congratulated for their diagnosis of celiac disease in an 11 -year-old girl who did not have clinical and laboratory findings of the disease, including bone age. She also had uveitis of the right eye only.

Although the authors stated that "uveitis may be regarded as one of the extra intestinal features of celiac disease", I would suggest it to be an "associated finding", since only one eye was involved.
