Inflammatory myofibroblastic pseudotumor of the tongue

, : Inflammatory myofibroblastic pseudotumor of the tongue. Revue de Stomatologie et de Chirurgie Maxillo-Faciale 106(5): 304-307

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a new entity recently described, first in the lung. IMT are found throughout the body. We report a very rare tongue localization in a 22-year-old white woman. After a first diagnosis of fibrosarcoma, a new examination of the slide and immunohistochemical examination led to the definitive diagnosis of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the tongue and not fibrosarcoma. IMT are rarely encountered in the head and neck region. Only 2 cases of IMT of the tongue have been reported in the world literature. Diagnosis of IMT is immunohistochemical. Spindle cells were reacted for smooth-muscle actin and vimentin. Treatment is surgical. The contribution of radiotherapy is not clear because of the small population of patients studied.
