Abstract

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) of the urinary bladder is a rare soft tissue benign tumor usually presents with hematuria, dysuria or obstructive urinary symptoms. No distant metastasis has been reported except in a single case. There is no clear consensus on the management plan yet. However, complete surgical resection is the mainstay management. We reported a case of a female patient presented with a painless prolapsing urethral mass that bleeds of touch with no signs of local invasion or distant metastasis, complete resection and pathological evaluation of the specimen revealed an IMT. The postoperative period was uneventful for 1 year. © 2020 The Author.
