Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is a rare lesion of uncertain etiology. It most commonly occurs in the lungs, but there are reports of extrapulmonary location. There is a documented different clinical behavior between the pulmonary and extrapulmonary lesions. Extrapulmonary location is characterized by unaggressive behavior and a tendency for recurrence. The treatment is based on surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy. We report the case of a 36-year-old patient suffering from IMT of the maxillary sinus.
