Peribronchial inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour: a case report

Easwaramangalath Venugopal Krishnakumar, Ajaykumar, Augustine Joy, Jaboy Bibin.

Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumour (IMT) is a rare neoplasm of mesenchymal origin, most commonly seen in the lungs of children and adolescents, but it can occur in older persons also. IMT also called inflammatory pseudotumor accounts for less than 1% of all lung tumours. Approximately half of the patients are asymptomatic. However, the patients with symptoms show cough, haemoptysis, dyspnoea and chest pain. Biopsy by thoracotomy or video assisted thoracoscopic surgery is often necessary to confirm the diagnosis. In this case report, we discuss IMT in a 56-year-old male, who presented with cough and fever of one and a half months duration.

Key words: Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour, Inflammatory pseudotumour, Haemoptysis, Dyspnoea, Fibrosarcoma, Bronchoscopy, Histiocytoma, Xanthogranuloma, Plasmocytoma
