A hamartoma can be defined as a developmental malformation composed of tissue that normally constitute the organ in which the tumor occurs, but in which the tissue elements, although mature, are disorganized. Hamartoma is one of the most common benign lung tumors. Most of them are located in the lung parenchyme, but very rarely it can originate endobronchially. There is no case report of multiple endobronchial hamartomas in Korea. We report a case of multiple endobronchial hamartomas in a 63 year old woman with a review of the literatures.
Key Words: Multiple endobronchial hamartomas
