  • OBJECTIVE:Endoscopic markers of duodenal villous atrophy (VA) can facilitate diagnosis of celiac disease during routine upper GI endoscopy. We studied their sensitivity for VA in a large series of patients undergoing GI endoscopy specifically for duodenal biopsy. Poor sensitivity in this setting would have significant and adverse implications for their performance during routine endoscopy.METHODS:All patients with VA on duodenal biopsy performed for positive serum endomysial antibody (EmA) and… CONTINUE READING
