Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) or inflammatory pseudotumors are a rare group of tumors usually affecting children and young adults. They occur in various anatomic locations, with most common being the lung accounting for almost 95% of the cases. We present a case of a 4-year-old girl who presented with fever and dull abdominal pain for 6 months with a clinically palpable left hypochondrium mass. On suspicion of mesenteric/gastric neuroendocrine tumor, Ga-DOTA-NOC positron-emission tomography-computed tomography was done; however, the biopsy revealed IMT.
