Core Tip High levels of fecal calprotectin (FC) have been found in several gastrointestinal diseases but only few and discordant reports investigated the role of FC in celiac disease (CD). So, we would like to share with the readers the results of our experience in 50 CD patients, who were referred to our third-level CD Unit. We think that FC is not able to investigate the subclinical inflammatory changes of active CD and FC should be considered a useless tool in the diagnostic work-up of uncomplicated CD but it should be accompanied by aTg when ruling out organic disease in patients with IBS.
