Small intestinal villous adenoma and celiac disease

Am J Gastroenterol. 1990 Jun;85(6):748-51.


We describe the first patient with presumed celiac disease to present with a jejunal villous adenoma. Small bowel adenocarcinoma complicating celiac disease probably arises from adenoma, although this has not been previously addressed. The literature concerning factors in celiac disease predisposing to small intestinal epithelial neoplasia is reviewed.
