Endobronchial hamartomas are only rarely encountered. They cause irreversible lung damage due to bronchial obstruction if not diagnosed early and treated properly. Among the various treatments for this rare disease, a surgical resection remains the most popular. We herein report a case of a 53-year-old man presenting with an endobronchial hamartoma which was successfully excised by laser irradiation via a rigid bronchoscope, along with a review of 113 patients with this disease reported in the literature.
