In 1975, Charlotte Anderson, in her classic textbook on Paediatric Gastroenterology, wrote that ‘‘The typical child with celiac disease is usually fair-haired and blueeyed.’’ (1). Pioneer epidemiologic studies apparently enforced the concept of the ‘‘white face of CD’’ by reporting the highest world incidence of celiac disease (CD) from Western Ireland, Austria and Sweden (2). Like snow in the sun, these views melted away in the light of the subsequent developments of CD epidemiology. Sensitive… Expand

Topics from this paper

Atypical presentation is dominant and typical for coeliac disease.
TLDR
There is a high prevalence of CD antibodies among patients with GI symptoms (3.7%). Expand
An epidemiologic survey of celiac disease in the Terni area (Umbria, Italy) in 2002-2010.
TLDR
There is evidence for consistent delayed diagnosis of celiac disease in the province of Terni, raising the possibility that the atypical form of the disease, more difficult to recognize and more likely to escape early diagnosis, may have become increasingly commoner overtime. Expand
Coeliac disease in an Indian patient: an important diagnosis to consider
TLDR
The pathogenesis of coeliac disease is related to intolerance of gluten that results in a T-lymphocyte-mediated, small intestinal enteropathy in genetically predisposed individuals, who commonly express the HLA-DQ2 or HLA -DQ8 haplotypes. Expand
Cutting-Edge Issues in Celiac Disease and in Gluten Intolerance
TLDR
Some relevant aspects related to the laboratory diagnosis of CD and, more extensively, of gluten intolerance are considered, such as the best combination of tests for early and accurate diagnosis, the diagnostic role of new tests for detecting antibodies against neoepitopes produced by the transglutaminase–gliadin complex, the forms of non-celiac gluten intolerance (gluten sensitivity), and the use and significance of measuring cytokines in CD. Expand
Serological triage for celiac disease in adolescents and young adults attending university
TLDR
The high levels of anti-transglutaminase antibodies found in this study were similar to those found in Europe and the United States suggesting that serological triage can be carried out even in populations considered to be low risk. Expand
Celiac disease and gluten-associated diseases.
  • S. Helms
  • Medicine
  • Alternative medicine review : a journal of clinical therapeutic
  • 2005
TLDR
This review explores the etiology and pathology of celiac disease, presents support for the relationship between gluten and other diseases, and provides effective screening and treatment protocols. Expand
Molecular Structure Investigation of Gluten and Its Role in Celiac Disease
TLDR
In this study, in addition to introducing the mechanism of celiac disease, the molecular structure of gluten and it interacts with HLA-DQ2 will be reviewed. Expand
Two Common Reasons of Malabsorption Syndromes: Celiac Disease and Whipple’s Disease
TLDR
This review will focus on diseases in which the mucosal phase of the digestive process is predominately disturbed, including celiac disease and Whipple’s disease, and provide a diagnostic algorithm of malabsorption syndromes. Expand
In depth analysis of risk factors for coeliac disease amongst children under 18 years Old in the Gaza strip. A cross sectional study
TLDR
The study showed that recreation and social activities for coeliac patients are substantially missing in the Gaza Strip and proved that AEI is a reliable centre for care of coeeliac disease patients and conducting relevant studies. Expand
Coeliac in Patients with Gastrointestinal Symptoms: A Population-Based Study in Tehran
TLDR
This study shows a high dispersion of celiac among Iranian patients with the gastrointestinal symptoms (3%). Expand

"Early" vs. "late" diagnosis of celiac disease in two ethnic groups living in the same geographic area.
TLDR
Compared the manifestations of celiac disease in children of both ethnic groups and questioned whether differences in presentation relate to degree of awareness for celiac Disease in each group, which varied markedly between both groups. Expand
Celiac disease in Turkish short‐statured children and the value of antigliadin antibody in diagnosis
TLDR
Clinical characteristics, gliadin antibody measurements and duodenal biopsies in 47 children with short stature and without gastrointestinal symptoms are evaluated in order to determine the incidence of celiac disease and the diagnostic value of immunoglobulin (Ig)A and IgG antigliadin antibodies (AGA) for CD. Expand
Prevalence of Celiac disease among children in Finland.
TLDR
The presence of serum tissue transglutaminase and endomysial autoantibodies is predictive of small-bowel abnormalities indicative of celiac disease and there is a good correlation betweenAutoantibody positivity and specific HLA haplotypes. Expand
Why is Celiac Disease So Common in Ireland?
TLDR
The ethnic and genetic mix of those living on the island of Ireland and aspects of Irish dietary history are reviewed, and how these factors may have combined to result in a high frequency of celiac disease is considered. Expand
The coeliac iceberg in Italy. A multicentre antigliadin antibodies screening for coeliac disease in school‐age subjects
TLDR
These findings confirm that, in Italy, CD is one of the most common chronic disorders showing a wide and heterogeneous clinical spectrum and most CD cases remain undiagnosed unless actively searched. Expand
Prevalence of celiac disease in argentina: screening of an adult population in the La Plata area
TLDR
The screening protocol showed a very high prevalence of celiac disease for an urban area of Argentina that is ethnically similar to 90% of the general population of the country, and the heterogeneous clinical picture of new patients showed predominance of asymptomatic cases. Expand
Celiac disease in Arabs.
TLDR
The relatively high incidence of celiac disease in Jordanian children may be related to the large wheat consumption in this population (135 kg/head/year), and the late onset could berelated to the widespread prevalence of prolonged breast-feeding in Jordan and late introduction of cereals in children with late presentation. Expand
Prevalence of celiac disease in at-risk and not-at-risk groups in the United States: a large multicenter study.
TLDR
The results suggest that CD occurs frequently not only in patients with gastrointestinal symptoms, but also in first- and second-degree relatives and patients with numerous common disorders even in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms. Expand
Coeliac disease in Middle Eastern countries: a challenge for the evolutionary history of this complex disorder?
TLDR
Clinical manifestations of coeliac disease vary markedly with the age of the patient, the duration and the extent of disease, and the absence of any supply for gluten-free diet in Middle Eastern countries represents a real challenge to both patients and clinicians. Expand
Celiac Disease in Children with Diarrhea Is More Frequent than Previously Suspected
TLDR
CD is common among patients labeled as chronic diarrhea and in this subgroup, gluten-free diet may lead to a significant improvement in symptoms and be indicated in all patients being evaluated for chronic diarrhea. Expand
