Abstract

The inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour of the lung is considered a rare diagnosis of lung masses. We report the case of a five-year-old girl who presented with recurrent pyrexia, dry cough, and shortness of breath. Chest X-ray and computed tomography showed a total atelectasis of the left lower lobe and a segmental atelectasis of the left upper lobe. The mass was removed in toto, histopathology revealed the diagnosis of an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour of the lung. The patient is without any signs of relapse 30 months after surgery.
