Brunner’s gland adenomas are rare benign tumors of the duodenum that are traditionally managed endoscopically or surgically. A 38-year-old male who presented with vague epigastric pain and upper gastrointestinal bleeding symptoms underwent a laparoscopic resection of a large pediculated duodenal adenoma. This approach offers the benefits of minimally invasive surgery in large tumors that cannot be resected through endoscopy.
