Abstract

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor occurs primarily in the viscera and soft tissue of children and young adults. This tumor is potentially malignant because of its tendency for local recurrence and its ability to metastasize. It is composed of a variable mixture of collagen, inflammatory cells, and usually bland spindle cells showing myofibroblastic differentiation. We report a 38-year-old female diagnosed with inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor preoperatively and has undergone right upper and middle lobectomy through fifth intercostal space for the same. Post-operative histopathology corroborated with preoperative diagnosis.
