Abstract

Accurate diagnosis of celiac disease is important because patients are advised to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet for life. This management is critical to avoid disease complications such as malignancies. In this review the new terminology for the disease clinical features (active, silent, latent and potential celiac disease) and the disease association with other conditions are commented. The value and efficacy of the assessment of serum antigliadin antibodies and of antireticulin, antiendomysial and tissue transglutaminase autoantibodies in the diagnosis and follow-up of the celiac disease are particularly evaluated.
