    Pulmonary Hamartomas (PH) are benign tumour-like lesions of lung with an uncommon occurrence and pose a diagnostic challenge on chest radiograph. Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) can lead to a definitive diagnosis as well as distinguishes these from malignant lung mass. Most of the...

    Pulmonary hamartoma is the most common benign neoplasm of the lung. Its size is usually smaller than 4 cm, and a pulmonary hamartoma larger than 10 cm is rare. Pulmonary hamartoma with air-filled cystic areas is also an unusual form. Since it is a rare condition, in this article, we reported a...

    A mesenchymal hamartoma of the chest wall is a rare benign tumor. Each case has a different clinical course as well as different radiological imaging findings, and various histopathological diagnoses. In addition, mesenchymal hamartoma is sometimes mistaken for a malignant tumor. This report...

    While most lung neoplasms are malignant, a subset of true neoplasms are benign, the most common of which are pulmonary hamartomas. In addition, a substantial proportion of lung mass lesions are nonneoplastic; granulomas are among the commonly encountered nonneoplastic masses. There is also a...

    Introduction Splenic hamartoma is a primary benign tumor of the spleen, which is often found incidentally. Splenic hamartomas are very rare, with approximately 150 cases documented in the literature to date. They represent benign vascular proliferation. Histological findings consist of...

    Pulmonary hamartoma is the most common benign neoplasm of the lung, but the cystic form is very rare. This report presents the case of a 31-year-old woman with two cystic pulmonary lesions. She was radiologically and clinically diagnosed to have multiple ruptured hydatid cysts, and underwent a...

    Breast hamartoma is an uncommon poorly recognised benign breast neoplasm. Hamartoma displaying marked smooth muscle components known as myoid hamartoma of the breast is a much rarer entity. We present a case of myoid hamartoma of breast with chondroid differentiation in a 46-year-old woman. The...

    Basaloid follicular hamartoma is a benign lesion of important consideration because it can be mistaken both clinically and histologically for basal cell carcinoma. The formation of basaloid follicular hamartoma has been linked to a mutation in the patched gene, which is part of the same pathway...

    Forty-three consecutive patients with solitary pulmonary nodules (SPNs) on chest radiographs were studied scintigraphically after administration of the somatostatin analogue 99mTc-EDDA/HYNIC-TOC. The objective of the study was to assess the usefulness of the procedure for differentiation of SPNs...

    Brunner's gland hamartomas are rare tumours of the duodenum. These lesions have previously been described as being benign, with no malignant potential. A case report is presented of a Brunner's gland hamartoma, whose histology revealed a focus of well marked epithelial dysplasia. This case...
