ABSTRACT
An inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is an uncommon type of tumor composed of spindle-shaped myofibroblast admixed with mature plasma and inflammatory cells. It is most common in the lungs and in various organs; however, a few cases of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the breast have been reported in the literature. To date, there are no typical radiologic findings but an ill-defined marginated mass which was a suspicious malignancy has been reported in the literature. Here, we describe the mammographic and ultrasonographic findings of a case of an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the breast with a spiculated margin which was strongly suspect as being a malignancy in a 36-year-old woman.
