Özet

Background/Purpose: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare benign neoplasm. Although it is commonly seen in children, the number of childhood cases in the current literature is limited. Furthermore, malignant degeneration or transformation to lymphoma in the recurrent or residual IMT have directed attention to this interesting entity. Herein, the authors present their experience with IMT with special emphasis on diagnosis and treatment.
