Abstract

Duodenal lipomas are rare benign tumours of the gastrointestinal system. They are mostly asymptomatic. A 76 years old woman is diagnosed duodenal lipoma in our hospital and operated due to bleeding. There is no complication after operation and the patient is discharged with good recovery. Duodenal lipomas are rare benign lesions and symptomatic of them can be treated endoscopically or surgically.
