• We present a case of polypoid adenoma of the Brunner glands of the duodenum. The patient had upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Correct diagnosis of a polypoid mass in the first portion of the duodenum as the cause of bleeding was made, and the lesion was resected endoscopically via an endoscope, using a cautery snare. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of resection of a Brunner gland adenoma with endoscopy, and we hope to encourage the use of this technique for removal of polypoid lesions of the upper gastrointestinal tract.
