Abstract

The concept of celiac disease (CD) has greatly evolved during the last decades; ranging from the classical digestive form to the peculiar monosymptomatic and silent forms. Thus, in order to assess the knowledge of interns and residents in pediatrics about CD, a local survey was conducted through a 14-item questionnaire. This work provided a local glimpse of young doctors' awareness about CD. The level of knowledge was globally correct, but vigorous efforts are needed; notably regarding the use of celiac serology and the introduction of the gluten-free diet.
