Eur J Cardiothorac Surg. 1989;3(2):184-5. doi: 10.1016/1010-7940(89)90100-0.

Abstract

We report a case of giant pulmonary hamartoma found in a patient who had undergone lobectomy and thoracoplasty 40 years previously. This particular case may be consistent with the theory of hamartomas as acquired lesions.
