Abstract

The abdomen, often referred to as the "Pandora's Box", presents diagnostic challenges, especially in cases of chronic pain. This report details a perplexing case of chronic, vague abdominal pain accompanied by nonspecific laboratory findings, ultimately leading to the diagnosis of atypical celiac disease through duodenal biopsy and serological investigations. The presented case highlights the significance of a thorough and methodical work-up in managing chronic conditions, emphasizing the importance of considering celiac disease in cases of ambiguous abdominal pain.
