INTRODUCTION: Benign pulmonary tumors account for a small proportion in pulmonary tumors, of these, lung hamartomas are the most common with an incidence between 0.025% and 0.32%.

CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of endobronchial hamartoma in a 56-year-old male. This patient presented with recurrent fever, cough and sputum for 13 years, especially in winter, and showed progressive shortness of breath and exercise intolerance in recent 6 years. Chest CT showed one shadow of calcification located in the left main bronchus and left destroyed lung with multiple cavities. Pathological diagnosis after left total pneumonectomy showed endobronchial hamartoma composed largely of cartilage.
