  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 A 51-year-old man, having been on a 7 year period of hemodialysis due to end stage renal disease, was found to have multiple oval-shaped elevated lesions of various sizes with erosions and erythema by upper gastrointestinal x-ray and endoscopic examinations. Strip and regular biopsy specimens revealed Brunner's gland hyperplasia. There have been many reports of Brunner's gland hyperplasia, however, this case was rare in a sense of shape and distribution of the lesions. We discussed the characteristics and cause of Brunner's gland hyperplasia by reviewing the literature.
