Abstract

The aim of this article is to focus on the great variability of clinical expression of celiac disease. The classic clinical features of the disease in infancy are steatorrhea, diarrhea, weight loss and malnutrition. However after infancy, celiac disease often presents with only mild abdominal symptoms or vague non-specific complaints; the non-specific nature of these symptoms often leads to delays and errors in diagnosis and dietetic treatment. Patients with celiac disease are at greater risk than the general population for the development of small-intestinal lymphomas, possibly preventable with a gluten-free diet. Sensitive and specific non-invasive screening tests for celiac disease are now available and useful for early diagnosis.
