Research: Sex and racial disparities in duodenal biopsy to evaluate for celiac disease
Sex and racial disparities in duodenal biopsy to evaluate for celiac disease.
Lebwohl B, Tennyson CA, Holub JL, Lieberman DA, Neugut AI, Green PH.

Gastrointest Endosc. 2012 Oct;76(4):779-85. doi: 10.1016/j.gie.2012.05.011. Epub 2012 Jun 23.

In this paper we demonstrate that physicians biopsy men and racial minorities less often than they biopsy females at the time of endoscopy.  This contributes to the underdiagnosis of celiac disease.
