Multiple hamartoma syndrome is a syndrome characterized by more than one hamartoma.[1]:673

It is sometimes equated with Cowden syndrome. However, MeSH also includes Bannayan–Zonana syndrome (that is, Bannayan–Riley–Ruvalcaba syndrome) and Lhermitte–Duclos disease under this description. Some articles include Cowden syndrome, Bannayan–Riley–Ruvalcaba syndrome, and at least some forms of Proteus syndrome and Proteus-like syndrome under the umbrella term PTEN hamartoma tumor syndromes (PHTS).
