Abstract

Inflammatory pseudotumor (IP) is an unusual cause of chronic abdominal pain in children. The management of these lesions is complicated by controversies surrounding their appropriate classification and the numerous alternate names with which they are described. Successful treatment requires careful radiologic and pathologic evaluation to distinguish IPs from other lesions, along with complete surgical resection. We present the case of a 15-year-old boy with IP and review the literature in an attempt to simplify the description of these tumors.
