If a patient has been successfully treated in the past by a GFD, the recurrence or worsening of the patient's symptoms may be a dire development, heralding the development of a malignancy, the most common being malignant lymphoma, particularly the enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma of refractory CS type 2, a CS variant that develops resistance to a GFD.
