Celiac disease (CD) is a permanent intolerance to gluten. It produces harm to the proximal small intestine mucosa. Currently the diagnostic criteria admits a tenfold increase from normal values of the serological markers. Coeliac disease prevalence, in different countries and geographical areas, has expanded in the last years, due partially to the generalized use of serological markers, which have permitted us to know the existence of latent and silent presentations of CD. The classical presentation of CD is nowadays exceptional.
