A sub-group of celiac disease.... 

This article appeared in the May 30 edition of the Celiac.com newsletter. I had no idea a fatal form existed:

Refractory Celiac Disease Might Be More Common in Europe than in the USA

I am curious whether the incidence of this more serious variety will increase in the future or whether awareness of it will cause more of the at-risk population to voluntarily go gluten-free in an attempt to head it off. Either way, I believe far more study is warranted.
