We report the case of a 39-year old woman with celiac disease in association with a cavitating mesenteric lymph node, hyposplenism and intra-hepatic haematopoiesis. The serious initial clinical picture evoked a diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma but was not confirmed on multiple biopsies. Despite the usual poor prognostic clinical outcome in such a setting, treatment with a strict gluten-free diet resulted in a remarkable persistent improvement in clinical status and lead to almost complete regression in radiological signs observed for up to 30 months follow-up.
