The Celiac Sprue Association (CSA) is a member-based, non-profit organization dedicated to helping adults and children with celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis through education, information and research. It is the largest non-profit information and referral organization representing the celiac community. Celiac disease is a common genetic, immune mediated, digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. Celiac disease is also known as celiac sprue, nontropical sprue, and gluten-sensitive enteropathy. A gluten-free diet is the primary if not the sole management of this condition. Dermatitis herpetiformis is often referred to as "celiac disease of the skin." There is strong evidence that the changes in the intestinal mucosa and the immunologic findings in the majority of patients are identical with those found in celiac disease. A gluten-free diet is recommended to control the skin blisters, which occur with dermatitis herpetiformis. CSA/USA, Inc supports a network of local chapters, resource units and activities for children.
