Abstract

The authors report and discuss the results obtained by means of the combinations of the freeze-fracture technique with morphometric analysis in the investigation of the healing processes of gluten-sensitive enteropathy in dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) patients after one and two years of gluten-free diet (GFD). The samples of jejunal mucosa of 4 patients showed after the first year of GFD microvilli recover to their normal structure, but their number remain low, while during the second year we noted a striking increase in their number too. On the contrary, the tight-junctions net is reconstructed in a relatively short time, and recovers its normal appearance within one year of GFD.
