Silent coeliac disease may occur in parents especially in mothers of preterm and small gestational age infants even in the absence of apparent clinical indications.
Objective: Coeliac disease is a chronic disease and is common all over the world. It has many other associated systemic side effects. This study investigated the effect of paternal and maternal silent coeliac disease on birthweight and gestational age in newborns.
Serum leptin, C-reactive protein and alpha-l antitrypsin levels were determined in children with acute viral hepatitis A. However no significant difference was found between patients and controls in different clinical presentations.
