Incidence rates by birth of celiac disease of 0.09 per 1000 live births were described for the period 1960-88 in the entire Danish population.
Broad diagnostic criteria were used in order to prevent the risk of under-diagnosing the disease.
The observations support previous local reports from Copenhagen County of low incidence rates by birth of celiac disease.
The study presents the lowest incidence rate by birth of celiac disease yet described.
