Abstract

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMT) is an extremely rare, benign softtissue lesion of unknown aetiology and pathogenesis that mimics malignant lesions clinically and radiologically found in the maxillofacial region.

The current mode of treatment for inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMT) is surgical excision with regular follow up. In this case report a 40 years old female presented with an intraosseous inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMT) in the left side of mandible which was treated by surgical excision of the lesion.
