Abstract

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a specific entity composed of myofibroblastic cells with a variable admixture of inflammatory cells, including mature lymphocytes, histiocytes, plasma cells and eosinophils, with infiltrates of collagen fibrils. It occurs predominantly in the soft tissues and also, sometimes, in the head and neck region. Various synonyms used for it include inflammatory myofibrohistiocytic tumor, inflammatory pseudotumor, xanthomatous pseudotumor, plasma cell granuloma, myxoid hamartoma, lymphoid hamartoma, fibrous xanthoma, benign myofibroblastoma, pseudosarcoma and most recently, inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT). The recent nomenclature describes it as being a reactive lesion. Herewith, we are reporting a case of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) with no bone involvement with a brief review on its clinical and biological behavior.
