Abstract
In this article we review recent worldwide epidemiological data of coeliac disease (CD). An emphasis is made on adult figures as there is reduction of infants cases that is counterbalanced by the increase of CD in older children or adults. We review data from Europe, USA, South America, Australia, Asia and Africa. Studies in mixed population and in patients undergoing endoscopy are also mentioned. The prevalence of the disease varies between 1/100-500 in different continents. It is possible that the low incidence of CD in some regions is due to the decrease of the prevalence of classic form of the disease.
