Primary inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a very rare tumor arising from stomach and it closely mimics gastric GIST. It usually affects the lung and found in children and young patients. The diagnosis of gastric IMT is usually done post-operatively by immunohistochemistry examination where it is seen that IMT is positive to SMA and vimentin. Complete surgical excision is the treatment of choice and local recurrence is usually seen in incompletely resected cases.
