Hamartomas are the most frequent benign tumor of lung that occur in adults and occasionally in children. They produce no symptoms but are often discovered incidentally on chest X-rays. In this report we describe a case of hamartoma. Cytogenetic studies were performed on short term tissue culture from the histopathologically confirmed hamartoma mass. A clonal chromosomal aberration add [6] (p21 ) was observed. Comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) showed both gains and losses on different chromosomes in detail in whole genome, and also confirmed former cytogenetic findings in this patient.
