Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) of the liver is a rare tumor like lesion that can mimic malignant liver neoplasm. IMT is a lesion composed of myofibroblastic spindle cells, plasma cells, lymphocytes, and eosinophils. It can occur in soft tissues and viscera. It was previously called plasma cell granuloma, inflammatory myofibrohistiocytic proliferation, and inflammatory pseudo tumor, but IMT is the designation currently used. IMT is more frequently described in the lung and abdomen of young patients, but it can also be found in the central nervous system, salivary glands, larynx, bladder, breast, spleen, skin, and liver. Here, we present a case of IMT of the liver in a 55-year-old female patient which is a rare presentation.
