The article discusses the genetic association between factor V Leiden and coeliac disease. The case involved a young woman presented with severe ascites due to Budd-Chiari syndrome. Based from observation, she presented with a scalloped duodenal mucosa suggestive of coeliac disease, further confirmed by histology and serological tests. It was clearly a common genetic disorder, although susceptibility to coeliac disease is strongly determined by environmental gluten.

We wanted to verify this concept and establish whether one or more biopsy samples are needed in order to make a correct diagnosis of CD.METHODS: One...
