Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumor Leading to Intestinal Obstruction in an Infant

Bethany Slater [1] , Andrea Sotelo [2]

58 46

There are a number of causes of small bowel obstruction in infants, most commonly from congenital causes. Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) of the alimentary tract is a very unusual cause of intestinal obstruction in children. IMT is a rare, benign solid tumor that presents mostly in the pediatric population. We present a case of a jejunal IMT causing bowel obstruction in a four month old female treated with laparoscopic resection and bowel anastomosis.
