Benign neoplasm of the lung is rare, and pulmonary hamartoma is the most common form of benign neoplasm of the lung. Most pulmonary hamartomas are parenchymal hamartomas, and endobronchial hamartomas are very rare and usually occur as a single mass. We report a case of a 55-year-old man presenting with multiple endobronchial chondroid hamartomas that had not been confirmed preoperatively. The patient received bilobectomy, and the postoperative course was uneventful. There was no evidence of recurrence or complications during the 6-month follow-up period. Reports of multiple endobronchial chondroid hamartomas are rare in the literature, and the awareness of this form of benign disease is important in the differential diagnosis of pulmonary neoplasms.
