Mediastinal Lymphoid Hamartoma

Mediastinal Lymphoid Hamartoma Abstract A case report of a 56-year-old man with mediastinal lymphoid hamartoma is presented. This unusual lesion occurs in young adults, presents diagnostic difficulties, and pursues a benign course. As the title implies, it would appear to be hamartomatous in origin. References 1.
