Abstract

Celiac disease (non-tropical sprue, gluten-sensitive enteropathy) is a chronic condition in which there is a characteristic, though non-specific, mucosal lesion of the small intestine, which impairs nutrient absorption by the involved bowel, and which improves on withdrawal of wheat gliadins and barley and rye prolamins from the diet.
