Abstract

Celiac disease (CeD) is an immune-mediated enteropathy triggered by the ingestion of gluten, which is present in wheat, barley, and rye. The clinical manifestations of CeD are diverse, ranging from diarrhea, steatorrhea, weight loss, or growth failure, through constipation, fatigue, and abdominal pain, to anemia, early osteoporosis, and neuropathy, to state a few. This chapter discusses the wide range of presentations encountered by care providers and focuses on the non-classical ones, which need to be carefully considered to avoid misdiagnosis of CeD.
