Celiac Disease

Key Points

  • Celiac disease is an immune-mediated disease caused by exposure to gluten.
  • Specific oral manifestations observed in childhood may help to identify patients with early celiac disease before serious disease progression and harm develop.
  • Strict adherence to gluten-free diet predicts a generally good prognosis, allowing for healing of the intestinal mucosa.
