Abstract

We determined the incidence of celiac disease in the western New York area to be 1.29 per 10,000 live births. Celiac disease occurred in 29 children with gastrointestinal symptoms. Two children (1.7%) of 117 with short stature and 10 (4.0%) of 211 with diabetes mellitus had serum anti-endomysial antibodies. We conclude that the incidence of childhood celiac disease in our area is much less than that reported in Europe.
