Surgical management of giant Brunner's gland hamartoma: Case report and literature review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Brunner's gland hamartomas (BGH) are uncommon benign tumors of the duodenum forming mature Brunner's glands. We report here an unusual case of a giant BGH that was not amenable to endoscopic or surgical local resection thus requiring a pancreaticoduodenectomy for extirpation. The relevant literature is discussed.
