Enteropathy-associated T-cell Lymphoma : Intro
Enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL) was previously known as EATL, type I. It accounts for about two-thirds of all intestinal T-cell lymphomas and is closely linked to celiac disease. It is more common in individuals of Northern European descent due to high prevalence of HLA alleles linked to celiac disease. This resection specimen of jejunum shows EATL presenting as a large ulcerated mass.
