Keiichiro Kume, Masahiro Yamasaki, Ryoichi Narita, Ichiro Yoshikawa


A rare case of Brunner’s gland hyperplasia mimicking duodenal cancer is reported. A 68-year old woman had an elevated lesion in the second portion of the duodenum. Endoscopy after spraying with indigo carmine dye showed a granular appearance and fold convergence. The biopsy specimen suggested hyperplasia without malignancy. However, since the endoscopic features strongly suggested malignancy, endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) was performed to establish the correct diagnosis. The final pathology diagnosis was Brunner's hyperplasia.
