Abstract

Inflammatory myofibroblasts tumour (IMT) is a rare entity and has many synonyms. It can occur at many sites in body and is of unknown etiology. It is successfully managed by surgical technique. IMT of tonsil is extremely rare. To our knowledge, only three cases of IMT of tonsil are reported in English literature. We hereby report the fourth case of IMT of tonsil, clinical features, etiology, diagnosis and management.
