Abstract

Rapid-onset obesity with hypothalamic dysfunction, hypoventilation, and autonomic dysregulation (ROHHAD) syndrome is a rare and potentially lethal disorder. The etiology is unclear but paraneoplastic syndrome and autoimmunity secondary to neural crest tumors have been considered, even in patients without any detectable tumor due to their tendency for spontaneous remission. We are presenting a 13-year-old girl with ROHHAD syndrome and celiac disease, which may suggest further evidence for immune-mediated etiology in the pathogenesis of ROHHAD syndrome.

Keywords: autoimmunity; celiac disease; ROHHAD syndrome
