In January 2020, the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) updated its guidelines for the diagnosis of paediatric coeliac disease. The revised ESPGHAN guidelines offer a more streamlined approach to diagnostic pathways for the detection of this disease in children. This article provides an update for clinicians on how to diagnose and manage coeliac disease in children based on the revised guidelines and other available literature.
