Abstract:   (1492 Views)
Hamartoma of the breast is a rare benign breast lesion which is unfamiliar to most clinicians, although the mammographic features are usually characteristic. Hamartomas are composed of ducts, lobules, fat and fibrous tissue.

A patient who presented with a soft mobile breast lump which was later diagnosed to be a giant breast hamartoma is presented along with a brief review of the current literature.
