Pulmonary hamartomas are relatively common benign lesions containing variable amounts of various mesenchymal tissues. When containing macroscopic fat or coarse calcifications, their confident diagnosis is straightforward based on CT imaging. However, when the above features are absent, their diagnosis can be problematic and require a biopsy. Here we report a case of chemical shift MRI imaging aiding in diagnosis of a pulmonary hamartoma with nonspecific CT appearance.
