Özet

Celiac disease is a gluten-induced enteropathy controlled by gluten restriction. Celiac disease is occasionally associated with T-cell lymphoma. We report a case with celiac disease who presented with duodenal ulcer-like symptoms and endoscopic findings. The persistent symptoms despite a strict diet led to the suspicion of an associated malignancy. Intensive evaluation revealed a case with celiac disease associated with B-cell lymphoma. Although B-cell lymphoma is rare, it should be kept in mind especially in female patients with persistent symptoms and refractory celiac disease.
