Pancreatic hamartoma is a rare benign malformation that resembles a neoplasm and may be mistaken for a malignancy. The imaging findings of pancreatic hamartoma are not well established, as only one radiological case report has been described since 1983. Herein, we discussed a case of pancreatic hamartoma in a 35-year-old woman and conducted a literature review focused on imaging findings and differential diagnosis of pancreatic hamartoma. Increased late enhancement on post-contrast dynamic study and absence of diffusion restriction may be characteristic MR imaging findings of pancreatic hamartoma that may narrow the differential diagnosis of hypervascular pancreatic lesions.
