Enteropathy-associated T-cell Lymphoma (EATL) is a rare, but fatal complication of celiac disease. EATL may occasionally present simultaneously with celiac disease. In most cases, the clinical features of EATL are very similar to celiac disease in the initial stages, which usually leads to a late diagnosis. EATL is primarily observed during the sixth decade of life in patients with celiac disease who have no diet restrictions. In this article, we describe the diagnostic features of a case of EATL that was identified in a patient with celiac disease.
