ABSTRACT
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) of the urethra is a tumor composed of myofibroblasts and a mixed inflammatory infiltrate that rarely undergoes malignant transformation. The etiology and the biologic behaviors of IMTs are still unknown. Extensive pathologic examination is important to prevent misdiagnosis and the need for long-term follow up is emphasized. Recently, we experienced a case of a inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the urethra in a young female. To our knowledge, this is the first documentation of such an entity in published reports. So we present our experience with a review of literature.
Keywords: Urethra; Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor
