Hamartomas of the parotid gland are very rare. We present the case of a parotid gland hamartoma with oncocytic and sebaceous metaplasia arising as a 3-cm mass in a 70-year-old man. To the best of our knowledge, there has been no previous report of a tumor with the same features. We present this case to create awareness of hamartomas as part of the differential diagnosis of parotid masses.
