GARRIDO ABAD, Pablo et al. Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.1, pp.62-65. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report one case of myofibroblastic bladder tumor. Methods/Results: We report the case of a 30-year-old woman with recurrent urinary tract infections and incidental finding of a bladder mass after abdominal ultrasound. After TUR, inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the bladder was diagnosed. Conclusion: Myofibroblastic tumor (also known as inflammatory pseudotumor or pseudosarcoma) is a benign tumor with mesenchymal origin. Bladder location is very uncommon. It must not be misdiagnosed as a malignant neoplasm. Optimal treatment when arising in the bladder is TUR, with excellent long-term prognosis.

Keywords : Bladder; Inflammatory pseudotumor; Pseudosarcoma.
