: The celiac disease (CD) diagnosis sometimes is challenging and diagnostic process cannot always follow a simple algorithm but it requires a close collaboration between histo-pathologists, clinicians, laboratory and genetic experts. The genetic predisposition for CD is related to HLA-DQ2 and/or DQ8 but other HLA haplotypes and non-HLA genes may be involved in genetic predisposition. In particular DQ7 may represent an additive and independent CD risk associated haplotype. We describe an unusual case of a female 42 year old with a previous diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma, who has a clinical presentation suggestive for CD with negativity for anti-transglutaminase and anti-endomysium antibodies and HLA-DQ7 positivity.
