Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMFT) is an unusual solid tumor of mesenchymal origin seen in children and young adults. It occurs primarily in the lungs with equal gender predisposition. It has been proposed that the development of IMFT occurs after trauma, surgery, or infection with Epstein‒Barr virus and human herpesvirus, related with reactive cytokine production. Because of its rarity, it is important to distinguish IMFT from other colonic tumors. We report a rare case of IMFT in a 50-year-old man who presented with features of intestinal obstruction.
