In this paper, we review the histological features of coeliac disease and propose a standardized report scheme based on the Marsh classification. Furthermore, terms used by pathologists are defined. The most important histological differential diagnoses are given, as well as a definition of the different clinical forms of coeliac disease such as symptomatic, silent, latent, potential, treated and refractory coeliac disease.
