Abstract

Inflammatory mypfibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare tumour with unpredictable clinical presentation. It belongs to neoplastic inflammatory spindle cell lesion. People with IMT can be asymptomatic, some may have nonspecific respiratory symptoms, fever, or pain. Here we present a case of 56-year-old male who was incidentally detected with lump in the abdomen on ultrasound abdomen during evaluation for fever. On further evaluation on imaging with abdominal CT (Computerized tomography) angiogram, it was diagnosed as a highly vascular retroperitoneal mass lesion. Total surgical resection of the retroperitoneal tumour was done. Histopathological examination of the specimen was in favor of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour.
