Gluten intolerance is noticed by a faltering of weight gain and growth (CSP) ; it is certified by a therapeutic trial under the action of a glutenoprive regime. The aim of this work is an anthropometric study to assess the nutritional status of 16 patients with cœliac disease (MC) aged 08.43 ± 0.49 years ( ± SE), examined in 3 phases (B1, B2 and B3). 9 hospitalized patients for reasons other than the cœliac disease will serve as witnesses. The P/T ratio was significantly increased in step (B2) to (B1) (p<0.05). The difference becomes significant when comparing B1 to B3 (p<0.01). The individual values ​​of different anthropometric variables of patients with cœliac disease, show that 87.5% of cases have reached a phase of the CSP (B1). In phase (B2) and (B3), respectively CSP persists in 75% and 56.25% of the cases. In conclusion, the patients with cœliac disease have an important phase B1 failure to thrive. In a period of gluten restriction (RAG), it appears that the rate of CSP varies from one individual to another. Our results suggest that there is no standard length of the growth rate on the period of RAG.
