Caption: Coeliac disease. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of the wall of the small intestine, showing coeliac disease. The human intestinal wall (mucosa) appears flat and atrophied due to the loss of villi which normally project from the wall. Large holes correspond to the openings of intestinal glands. Yellow particles are migrating leucocytes (white blood cells). Coeliac disease (or gluten enteropathy) is an uncommon genetic condition in which the lining of the intestine reacts to gluten, a protein found in cereals. This causes malabsorption, mineral and vitamin deficiency. Magnification: x350 at 6x7cm size.
