Hamartomas are tumour-like malformations usually present since birth or which may develop during puberty. Hamartomas are related to anatomical development errors. Hamartomas are rarely found in the head and neck district. The case of an unusual vascular hamartoma localised in the hard palate of a 50-year-old female with no significant medical or family history is reported. Surgical treatment was performed by means of an excisional biopsy.
