Abstract

We report a case of enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL) of the jejunum in a 56-year-old man. The patient suffered for several years from nonspecific abdominal complaints, with no clinical evidence of malabsorption. The patient underwent extensive imaging procedures including barium meal and computed tomography. Computed tomography of the abdomen showed small mesenteric lymph nodes and an area of intestinal wall thickening. Barium meal demonstrated a short jejunal stricture. Histology revealed lymphoma of the jejunum, with microscopic changes distant from the lesion consistent with celiac disease. The spectrum of EATL ranges from patients with frank celiac disease, to patients with only immunohistochemical evidence of celiac disease, who develop small bowel lymphoma.
