ARAUJO FILHO, José de Arimatéia Batista et al. Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the bladder in a child: a case report. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.4, pp. 230-232. ISSN 0100-3984. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000400010.
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors rarely affect the urinary tract or children, and frequently mimic malignancy on imaging studies. According to the recent literature, only 35 cases of such bladder tumors in children have been reported. The authors present the case of a child with a bladder myofibroblastic tumor with favorable progression following complete surgical resection.
