We report the case of a well-controlled female asthmatic who developed 'multiple pulmonary hamartomas' on three separate occasions over a period of 25 years that necessitated surgical resection. To our knowledge, this is the first report of recurrent hamartomas in a single individual necessitating multiple thoracotomies.
