Upper gastrointestinal system adenoma is generally seen amongst elderly patients and quite rarely seen during the childhood. A 14-y-old female patient was referred to our hospital with complaints of vomiting and abdominal pain. She had been followed up for 6 y with the diagnosis of familial intermittent fever and chronic renal failure due to amyloidosis. Endoscopic examination of the upper gastrointestinal system revealed mild hyperaemia in the corpus and antrum, and a polyp of 0.5 x 0.5 cm with an ulcerated and pedunculated top in the bulbus. Brunner's gland adenoma was diagnosed by the histopathological examination of the lesion following polypectomy.
