Detailed radiological examinations were undertaken in six cases of hamartochondromas verified by histopathology on surgical samples. It has been shown that examination of lung hamartochondromas by computer tomography provides a good approach for separation of different tissues constructing hamartochondromas. Thus cartilage, lose and dense and mixed forms of connective tissue, and adipose tissue can be well separated. The growth rate of hamartochondromas is very slow, characterized by doubling times of several hundred to several thousand hours.
