  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A 86-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of the more detailed examination for a polypoid lesion in the duodenal bulb. Radiographic and endoscopic examinations of the upper gastrointestinal tract showed a pedunculated polypoid lesion with nodular surface and partial erythema. Endoscopic polypectomy was performed and the resected tumor was 24×22×20 mm in size. Histological examination revealed tubular adenocarcinoma restricted within the mucosal layer of tubular adenoma.

 From the diagnostic and therapeutic points of view, we recommend endoscopic polypectomy for early duodenal cancer.
