Celiac disease is sometimes associated with neurological complications. Only one case of celiac disease associated with migraine and cerebral calcifications has been reported. We present a patient with migraine (with and without aura) in whom neuroimaging revealed cerebral calcifications in the occipital and parietal regions bilaterally. Visual examination showed bilateral double scotoma, and further investigations revealed celiac disease. Migraine may on occasion be a sentinel symptom of mild celiac disease.
