Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that occurs in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten starts to degrade in the small intestine. It is expected to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. Two and one-half million Americans are undiagnosed and are at risk for long-term health complexities. Interpretation of the endoscopic biopsy is critical for diagnosis and distinguishing from other disorders of the small bowel. This course examines the histologic criteria for the diagnosis of celiac disease and differentiation from other disorders of the small bowel.
