Small bowel adenocarcinoma as first presentation of coeliac disease
Giorgetti G. M., Tursi A., Brandimarte G., Anemona L.
Coeliac disease is a chronic inflammatory disease of the gut with increased risk of gastrointestinal malignancy. Although enteropathy T-cell lymphoma is the most common neoplasm in coeliacs, an increased frequency of small bowel carcinoma has been described. A case is described of jejunal carcinoma as first presentation of coeliac disease, in which gastrointestinal and extraintestinal symptoms of disease developed only after surgical resection and disappeared after gluten withdrawal.
