Celiac disease is a malabsorption disorder, due to hypersensitivity to dietary gluten. Iron deficiency anaemia and predisposition to lymphoma are known haematological manifestations. There are a few reports on celiac associated leukaemia and still few of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) associated with celiac disease (two cases). We are reporting probably the third case in literature of acute myeloid leukaemia associated with celiac disease in a 15 year old boy.
