Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare disease. We report a rare case of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor occurs in the mediastinum. Chest contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) showed a heterogeneously enhanced irregular mass in the anterior mediastinum; a small pericardial effusion was also noted. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathology and immunohistochemical study.
