Brunner's gland hamartoma, also known as Brunneroma or Brunner's gland adenoma, is a rare tumor of the duodenum and an uncommon cause of gastrointestinal bleeding. In symptomatic patients, treatment requires either surgical resection or endoscopic polypectomy. We report a case of upper gastrointestinal bleeding from a pedunculated Brunner's gland hamartoma in the duodenal bulb. A new technique using hemoclip-assisted polypectomy is described to remove a large pedunculated Brunner's gland hamartoma.
