Why you should read this article:
  • To familiarise yourself with updates to the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition 2020 guidelines for coeliac disease in children

In January 2020, the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) updated its guidelines for the diagnosis of paediatric coeliac disease. The revised ESPGHAN guidelines offer a more streamlined approach to diagnostic pathways for the detection of this disease in children.
