CUETO RUA, Eduardo A et al. Celiac disease, a paradigmatic disease. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2008, vol.106, n.2, pp.151-154. ISSN 0325-0075.

We are reporting ten recently diagnosed children with celiac disease who presented neither undernutrition nor symptoms suggesting malabsortion syndrome. All showed IgA, EMA and just eight tTG2 autoantibodies. Biopsies allowing histopathologic diagnosis were taken after detailed endoscopic examina- tion from proximal duodenum. Samples from distal duodenum were within normal histologic range. The findings are particularly interesting in order to explain cases with aparent disagreements between clinical, laboratory and histopathologic data.

Keywords : Celiac disease; Histopathologic diagnosis.
