Abstract

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare tumor, classified by WHO of intermediate biological potential with tendency for local recurrence and small risk for distant metastasis. Histologically IMT is a mixture of inflamma- tory cells and myofibroblastic spindle cells proliferation. To our knowledge there is no MRI description of mesenteric IMT in the literature. We would like to emphasize the correlation between medical imaging and anatomical pathology based on our experience of a mesenteric IMT in a 28-year-old patient.
