The prognosis depends on the severity of the associated anomalies. The liver pathology plays a central role in that most clinical complications are due to long standing cholestasis as a consequence of(More)
Specific dental enamel defects (DEDs) in permanent teeth are frequently observed in coeliac patients. We examined the permanent teeth in 6949 secondary school children living in Trieste (78% of 8724 children born between 1978 and 1982). Children with DEDs were tested for serum antigliadin antibodies (AGAs) and antiendomysium antibodies (AEAs), and those(More)
