Abstract

Celiac disease occurs in about 1% of the population. Although diarrhea is the classical presentation, the diagnosis of celiac disease is frequently not considered as part of the differential diagnosis of a variety of different symptoms. It is,therefore, imperative that physicians who perform capsule endoscopy, and those who review the images, are aware of the variety of mucosa appearances inpatients who have celiac disease. In addition, studies are needed to determine the role of capsule endoscopy in the diagnosis and management of celiac disease.
