Abstract : A hamartoma is mostly a benign focal malformation that resembles a neoplasm in the tissue of its origin. It grows at the same rate as the surrounding tissue. It is composed of tissue elements normally found at that site, but they are growing in a disorganised manner. Hamartomas of the breast are rare and constitute to about 0.7% among all breast tumours. It is extremely rare to identify hamartoma in an ectopic breast tissue. Here, we report one such case of an unmarried young female who presented to us with a huge swelling in the left axillary region since childhood. On benign imaging and cytology background, excision biopsy was done and histopathology revealed hamartoma of the axilla arising from the ectopic breast tissue.
