The incidence of polypoidal tumors in the duodenum is scarce and Brunner's gland tumors represent 11% of these proliferations. Brunner's gland polypoid hamartoma or adenoma is a highly infrequent benign polypoid proliferation of Brunner's glands that is usually asymptomatic, although gastrointestinal bleeding or intestinal obstruction may sometimes occur. We present the case of a woman with an incidental diagnosis of duodenal polypoid hamartoma. The lesion was resected with polypectomy loop and at 48 h, the patient presented gastrointestinal bleeding as a complication. We describe the endoscopic treatment of the lesion and this complication.
