Abstract

Mammary hamartoma is a rare lesion commonly associated with Cowden syndrome. It presents clinically as a fibroadenoma. The nonspecific cytological findings makes the pre-operative diagnosis of this lesion difficult. Though hamartomas of the breast are predominantly benign, co-existent malignancies within them have been reported. These lesions also have a tendency to recur; hence a correct diagnosis and extensive sampling of hamartoma is essential. We report a case of mammary hamartoma with a brief review of literature.
