The corn protein gluten causes the gluten-sensitive enteropathy in susceptible persons (HLA-antigens). The diagnosis is made on the basis of the morphological criteria of villous atrophy of the jejunal mucosa and the clinical observation that the malabsorption can be healed by a gluten-free diet. The disease, which occurs in children and adults, is a distinct entity. Life-long adherence to a gluten-free diet is difficult.
