Abstract

The imbalance of the intestinal microbiota is link, by several diseases such as celiac disease, which causes inflammation in the small intestine. This inflammation is due by the digestion of gluten present in some type of cereals. In this work, fecal and duodenal biopsy samples were collected to characterize by conventional culture technique the composition of the Enterobacteries group in intestinal mirobiota of celiac children and were compared with control children. A significant difference detected in the intestinal flora of celiac children compared to controls children concerning the Enterobacteries group. We found an increase of E.coli, Enterobacter aerogeneses, and Klebsiella with presence of Salmonella sp, Shigella sp in biopsy and fecal samples of celiac children and a relationship between the increase of Enterobacter cloacea and the presence of positive anti-transglutaminase value.
