ABSTRACT

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare neoplasm with unknown malignant potential that has been described in most organ systems. We herein present a case of a young female who presented with macroscopic hematuria. An IMT of the urinary bladder which was not suspected after clinical, radiological and surgical work-up was diagnosed microscopically and confirmed by immunohistochemistry. A close clinical follow-up is recommended because of the unknown biological behavior of this tumor. A brief review of literature is also presented here.
