Th CD screening should be made early and the CD follow-up should be prolonged after the adolescence because the statural gain is always possible.
PECULIARITIES OF COELIAC DISEASE IN CHILDREN OF THE URAL REGION
Bolotova MF, Koruykina LP, Surinov VA. Perm, Russia
Background: Noninfectious pathology of gastrointestinal tract in children is an actual problem. Coeliac disease diagnosis is difficult.
The aim of our study was to investigate clinico-laboratory peculiarities of this disease in children of Perm and region.
Methods. Clinico-laboratory examination of 17 patients included general and biochemical analysis of blood with determination of protein fractions, lipogramme, electrolytes, enzymes: coprogramme, determination of trypsin and disacharide content in feces, estimation of intestinal flora, sweat test, T-, B-lymphocytes and immunoglobulins, USI of liver and spleen, bone roentgenography.
Results: During the last 3 years coeliac disease was diagnostised in 17 children. The first symptoms appear, when children take gliadincontaining food: loose, butter stool (100%), body mass decrease. Arrest of physical development, xeroderma, muscle hypotension, anorexia, vomiting, abdominal pain were revealed in 70% of children, pseudoascites in 2, osteoporosis in 4 children. Half of children demonstrated hypochromic anemia of the I stage and eosinophilia.. Dysproteinemia was determined in 30%, cholesterol, beta-lipoprotein, calcium decrease in 50% . Fatty acids, neutral fat, muscle fibers, iodophilic bacteria, protein detritus were revealed in coprogramme. Disturbance of intestinal microflora correlation was estimated. Decrease of theophyllinesensitive T-lymphicytes and IgA level was obtained in immunogramme in 1/3 of children. USI demonstrated pancreas changes in 50%. Prescription of agliadin diet and enzymes led to appetite improvement, stool normlization, body mass growth , anemia disappearance.

ULTRASONOGRAPHY OF THE ABDOMEN IN CHILDREN WITH COELIAC DISEASE
Kuleta-Bosak E, Kalita B, Sikora A, Slimok M,, Urban K, Bytom, Poland.
Ultrasonographic examination was carried out by means of Sonoline SL1, S1250 transducer sectoral 5 MHz and linear 5 and 7,5 MHz. All the organs of the abdomen were examined and special attention was paid to the appearance of the loops of the intestine i.e. width, contents, speed of peristalsis. In all cases, serum was tested for IgA EmA/IgG EmA and in particular cases duodenal biopsy was performed. Altogether 85 ultrasonic examinations of the abdomen were performed on 58 children with coeliac disease. Twenty-seven children were in process of the initial diagnosis (IgA EmA positive and villous atrophy (VA) III-IV degree). In 20 children a characteristic picture of the abdomen was observed with overflowing liquid contents in the lumen ( pseudoascites) and meteorismus. ( Suoliäänet vilkaat ja loiskivat). On gluten challenge ( 7 children), in all cases we noticed changes in the ultrasonographic picture of the intestines. Conclusions: (1) Enlarged intestinal loops with a considerable amount of liquid contents in the lumen and live peristalsis seen in ulttrasound examination may be a symptom of malabsorption syndromes and should accelerate gastroenterological diagnosis. (2) Appearance of such a picture of intestines in ultrasonic examination in children being treated by gluten free diet may be a first sign of not properly observing gluten-free diet. (3) During gluten provocation the changes in the ultrasonographic picture of intestines may preceed the appearane of antiendomysial antibodies (anti-EmA) .

THE USEFULNESS OF BETA-2 MICROGLOBULIN DETERMINATION IN CHILDREN WITH COELIAC DISEASE
Beta-2-m levels were raised , indicating indirectly the state of intestinal mucosa and the changes caused in it by glutren. Beta-2-m determiantion can be useful as a non-invasive means of monitoring treatment with a gluten-free diet.

ABNORMAL RECTOSIGMOID MOTILITY IN UNTREATED CELIAC DISEASE: IMPROVEMENT ON GLUTEN-FREE DIET:
Low levels of TG and VLDL in all children with CD.
In children with CD ,correctly observing a gluten-free diet, both total cholesterol levels and arterosclerosis risk factor are higher as compared to children with CD and not observing a gluten free diet and children without CD.
