Gladbach, who have now won six of their eight home games so far, sit seventh on 22 points, three behind Dortmund.
In a sumptuous five-goal first half, the hosts entered the break with a 3-2 lead.
Jonas Hofmann, fresh off his Germany World Cup squad, took the lead after four minutes before Julian Brandt, another Germany international on his way to the World Cup, leveled the visitors.
He scooped the ball up with his back to goal, spun quickly and volleyed in a superb equaliser.
Gladbach, however, scored twice more in four minutes through Ramy Bensebaini and Marcus Thuram to lead 3-1. Dortmund pulled one back with Nico Schlotterbeck’s volley on the rebound but the Ruhr Valley club were leaking badly at the back.
Just a minute after the restart, Kouadio Kone had too much time entering the box and he fired a low shot past goalkeeper Gregor Kobel.
Thuram should have added at least one more goal, but he missed a string of golden chances as Dortmund faltered.
