Hamartomatous polyps of the tonsil are rare. They have been described using various terms such as a lymphangiomatous polyp, lymphangiectatic fibrous polyp, lipomatous polyp, or pedunculated tonsil; hence, the actual incidence is difficult to be quantified. Polyp of the palatine tonsils is an unusual benign lesion of the head and neck. It is a rare polypoidal mass that generally arises from a pedicle attached to the tonsil and projecting into the oropharynx. Polypoid lesions of the head and neck are likewise rare, and such tumors arising from the palatine tonsils are sparse. Tonsillar polyp is an uncommon hamartomatous lesion that generally arises from the tonsillar surface. It has rarely been reported in the medical literature. We present a case of hamartomatous polyp of the palatine tonsil in a 17-year-old male patient.
