Our figures suggest a considerably greater frequency, and when adult diagnoses of coeliac disease are taken into account the frequency could be even greater. Other evidence4 has been adduced using hospital admission rates to suggest that coeliac disease may be less prevalent in England and Wales than in Scotland or Eire. Admission rates were three times greater in Eire and twice as great in Scotland as would be expected from English admission rates. Mylotte et a1. (1973) calculated1 that in the West of Ireland there was one childhood presentation with coeliac disease for every 597 live births.

Cases will tend of necessity to be hospital patients, but they are ultimately drawn from the general population. Controls should logically be taken from that same general population. Hospital patients of any sort become patients there for a variety of reasons which include the presence of a specific disease and a variety of other factors. Thus in paediatrics poor social circumstances may dominate the reasons for hospital admission or attendance with a variety of conditions so that any hospital control chosen for comparison with a coeliac patient may well tend to be drawn from a markedly different and deprived social background.

In the Gastrointestinal Unit of the Western General Hospital (WGH) , Edinburgh, jejunal biopsy is now performed by the nursing staff as an outpatient procedure whereas in the early 1960s laparotomy was often carried out to confirm that any villous atrophy was not due to an associated lymphoma. With increasing ease of diagnosis the wide spectrum of presentation and severity of coeliac disease has become obvious. Although in the acutely ill the dramatic benefits of a gluten-free diet are evident to both doctor and patient, the benefits of such a diet are less apparent in those patients with minimal symptoms.
