Abstract: Compared with the general population, patients with celiac disease have roughly a 2% higher mortality rate largely due to an increased incidence of malignancy, primarily enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL). Response to a gluten-free diet reduces the risk. (SOR: B, based on individual cohort studies.)
