ABSTRACT
Studies of population serological screening for celiac disease (CD) have identified numerous undiagnosed cases, leading to the concept of a "celiac iceberg". The article presents a study that sought to estimate the proportion of undiagnosed cases in a well defined local population, by comparing an estimate of point prevalence derived from incidence data with published estimates of overall disease prevalence. Clinical and demographic data for all biopsy proven incident cases of CD diagnosed at Poole Hospital, Dorset, England during a ten year period from 1993 to 2002 were collected prospectively.
