A case of Brunner's gland hyperplasia presenting as gastrointestinal bleeding is reported herein. A 40-year-old male presented to our hospital with features of upper gastrointestinal bleeding. The patient had a history of passing black tarry stools for the last two days. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was done, which showed a pedunculated polypoid lesion in the second part of the duodenum with active bleeding at the base of the polyp. Adrenaline was injected around the bleeding site; however, the patient continued to bleed. He was taken for surgery. A laparotomy was done, and the duodenum was mobilized and opened. A large pedunculated polyp measuring approximately 2 cm was found with bleeding at the base. Polypectomy was done. Histopathological examination of the specimen showed mature Brunner's gland with normal duodenal mucosa at the surface. Diagnosis of Brunner's gland hyperplasia was made. The patient is under follow-up and is symptom-free.
