Brunner's gland adenoma (BGA) is a very rare benign duodenal lesion, usually asymptomatic. BGA presents with duodenojejunal intussusception (DJI) is a very rare condition; only 2-3 cases have been reported. Here, we present a 45-year-old male, Yamani, presented with a 6-month history of recurrent upper abdominal pain and melena. Computed tomography (CT) with contrast revealed target sign. Laporatomy confirmed DJI with duodenal polyp that acting as a lead point. Histopathology confirmed BGA. To conclude, BGA presents with DJIs is very rare conditions; nonspecific symptoms and less dramatic presentation are possible causes of delay in diagnosis, CT with contrast is usually diagnostic.
