Brunner’s gland hamartoma: DISCUSSION Part 1

Brunner’s gland

There has been much debate about how best to describe the relatively common occurrence of Brunner’s gland proliferation. In 1934, Feyrter classified the proliferation of Brunner’s glands into three categories: diffuse hyperplasia, circumscribed hyperplasia and glandular adenoma. More recently, it has been suggested that what Feyrter called the glandular adenoma is better described as a Brunner’s gland hamartoma. Supporting evidence includes the lack of encapsulation, the absence of dysplasia and the admixture of tissues including ducts, acini, smooth muscle, adipose tissue, lymphoid tissue and smooth sheets of Brunner’s glands, all contained within the pathological structure. As early as 1941, Robertsen argued that the similar histology of these three groups suggested that each might be induced by the same pathological process. It seems reasonable, therefore, that Brunner’s gland hyperplasia and the Brunner’s gland hamartoma are different but related manifestations of a common etiology.
