Abstract

Introduction: Generalized joint hypermobility is a clinical feature that is associated with excessive joint laxity, which can occur alone or with various inherited disorders. The term benign joint hypermobility or joint hypermobility is used when presence of musculoskeletal symptoms in subjects with generalized hypermobility in the absence of demonstrable systemic rheumatic disease. In recent studies, it was shown that there is a strong relationship between structural and functional gastrointestinal disorders and joint hypermobility. We aimed to analyze the prevalence of celiac disease in a group patient with joint hypermobility.
