Celiac disease is an underdiagnosed condition in children with variable manifestations. Presenting symptoms in children are changing over time, are impacted by age and geography, and are distinct from those of adults with this disease. Prompt diagnosis of celiac disease in affected children may avoid growth and nutritional deficits in addition to preventing long term disease complications such as infertility and malignancy. Diagnosis and management of celiac disease in children requires expert medical and nutritional care to maximize positive outcomes.
