Hamartomas are benign proliferative lesions with no metastatic properties. The hamartoma of the tongue is usually rare. It is usually difficult to diagnose grossly. But can be diagnosed definitely with help of histopathological examination. Our case study is on a 5-year-old female who was asymptomatic and presented with cystic swelling at the base of the tongue which was initially diagnosed as a cyst but was diagnosed histopathologically as a hamartoma.
