      <Abstract>Lactose intolerance occurs in a genetically susceptible individual through lactase deficiency in the small intestine, which causes symptoms with sudden onset after lactose consumption. The treatment is mainly dietetic.&#13;
Patient, aged 10, presents abdominal pain, diarrhea, loss of appetite, with onset of 3 months. Clinically and anamnestically, we focused on a malabsorption syndrome, particulary a celiac disease considering positive family history for Hashimoto__ampersandsign#39;s disease and type 1 diabetes in a patient with recurrent / chronic diarrheal disease. Serologically, we ruled out celiac disease and there are no paraclinical arguments for inflammatory bowel disease. During hospitalization, dairy consumption aggravates symptoms and thus raises the suspicion of a genetic lactose intolerance, adult-type. The diagnosis is confirmed initially by following a lactose free-diet, under which the symptoms subside and, afterwards, by genetic testing</Abstract>
