Abstract :

Introduction: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a relatively new histopathologic term for an entity previously known as inflammatory pseudotumor, which is a rare pseudosarcomatous inflammatory lesion that occurs in the soft tissues of young adults. Objectives: The purpose of this review is to describe the pathogenesis, natural history, clinical presentation, imaging features, and management of inflammatory pseudo tumor in various locations throughout the body. Conclusion: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is a rare benign process mimicking malignant processes and has been found in almost every organ system. Radiologists should be familiar with this entity as a diagnostic consideration to avoid unnecessary surgery.
