According to the original criteria of the European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition (ESPGAN) (7), a gluten challenge and several intestinal biopsies must be performed in patients without a definitive initial CD diagnosis, i.e., who do not have marked intestinal damage or serum anti-tTG and EmA.
En 1969, en una reunion de expertos de la Sociedad Europea de Gastroenterologia y Nutricion Pediatrica (ESPGAN) mantenida en Interlaken se establecieron unos criterios diagnosticos de la enfermedad, con base en manifestaciones estrictamente histologicas y clinicas, con objeto de diferenciar la celiaquia de otras entidades infantiles que cursaban con diarrea cronica y sintomas que podian confundirse con la EC (38).
PACIENTES Y METODOS: Se estudiaron 21 ninos, 14 del sexo femenino y 7 del masculino, quienes consultan por presentar cuadros gastrointestinales cronicos; se les diagnostico enfermedad celiaca, segun los criterios del ESPGAN; a todos se les realizo biopsia de intestino delgado a traves de endoscopia digestiva y se les determinaron anticuerpos para enfermedad celiaca RESULTADOS: El sintoma mas frecuente en el momento del diagnostico fue diarrea cronica en 15/21 (72%) ninos.
Diagnosis of CD was established according to the original European Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition (ESPGAN) criteria (5) for the pediatric population and according to the revised ESPGAN criteria (5) for the adult population.

Diagnosis of CD includes the presence of circulating gliadin and endomysium antibodies (EMAs) (3) and is traditionally confirmed by intestinal biopsy, according to European Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition (ESPGAN) criteria (4).
One group (n = 74), affected by CD diagnosed according to the ESPGAN criteria (4), was examined retrospectively.
