Small intestine tumors are extremely rare. They account for approximately 1-5% of all gastrointestinal tumors. However, the risk of development of small intestine tumor increases in patients with celiac disease. Celiac disease is also known as gluten-sensitive enteropathy. Lymphoma is the most common small intestine tumor in patients with Celiac disease. Adenocarcinoma and adenoma of the small intestine are less common. Adenocarcinoma is frequently seen in the proximal segments of the small intestine. The prognosis of adenocarcinoma is worse than lymphoma. In the literature, there are few reported cases of duodenal adenocarcinoma in patients with Celiac disease and the imaging findings were not emphasized enough. For this reason, in this study, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging findings in a patient with duodenal adenocarcinoma associated with Celiac disease are presented.
