The hyperplasia of Brunner’s glands, also called Brunner’s Gland Hamartoma or Brunneroma is a rare proliferative lesion from Brunner’s glands of the duodenum. These lesions previously were described as benign, without malignant potential. Endoscopy has revolutionized the care of these polyps: it allows the macroscopic and histological diagnosis; it also allows curative treatment and monitoring at short term. We report a rare case of a large brunners hamartoma (BH), localized in the duodenal bulb who discovered at the occasion of upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage. This observation has two special particularities: Histopathological examination of this Brunner’s gland hyperplasia revealed, foci of low-grade dysplasia : Complete excision successfully despite its size and its delicate location.
