Overview of individuals with latent CD. *Three individuals were suspected to have reduced the amount of dietary gluten prior to biopsy (due to other family member with CD). A fourth individual had abstained from gluten at an earlier stage but consumed a normal diet at time of biopsy. The most common reason for misclassification was presence of an earlier unrecorded biopsy with villous atrophy (6.1%).
