Brunner’s gland hyperplasia in a geriatric chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes), an infrequently reported lesion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Benign duodenal tumours have very rarely been reported in captive non-human primates and are also rare in human beings. Brunner’s gland hyperplasia has not been fully described in a non-human primate. Here we report Brunner’s gland hyperplasia in a geriatric chimpanzee, which was an incidental finding during post-mortem examination.
