Duodenal Tumors

Lymphoid Polyposis

This is a benign but peculiar looking condition. The intestine is packed with lymphoid tissue which is necessary as part of the body’s immune system which protects us from infection. Most of the intestinal lymph deposits are below the surface and not usually seen. In this instance, the duodenum is full of these benign lymph nodules. They cause no problem and do not need treated. They are just an endoscopic oddity.
