Abstract: Mammary hamartoma is best viewed as a "breast within a breast" and is most often mistaken for fibroadenoma, phyllodes tumour or lipoma. It shows an abnormal blending of normal breast tissue components and is cured by removal. We present two cases of mammary hamartoma one occurring in a male breast. Although it is true, that all diseases occurring in female breast can also be seen in a male breast, there has been no report of this condition in a male. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of mammary hamartoma occurring in a male.
