Pulmonary hamartomas are rare, benign tumours of lung and are composed of an abnormal mixture of epithelial and mesenchymal elements. They usually present as single, round nodules with distinct boundaries and are mostly asymptomatic. We present a case of 45 years old female who presented with cough, chest pain and dyspnea with few episodes of hemoptysis. Computed tomography (CT) scan of thorax showed a well-defined non enhancing mass lesion measuring 4 × 3.2 cm seen in the left lower lobe. Wedge resection was done. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of pulmonary hamartoma.
