Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMTs) are rare neoplasms that can involve the airway. Recent studies have shown their malignant behavior with local recurrence and potential metastatic spread; half of the cases are associated with anaplastic lymphoma kinase gene rearrangement. Complete surgical resection is recommended, when feasible. We present a case of a 26-year-old woman admitted to our institution with severe respiratory failure; she was affected with primary IMT of the trachea and underwent complete surgical resection.

Abstract

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMTs) are rare neoplasms that can involve the airway. Recent studies have shown their malignant behavior with local recurrence and potential metastatic spread; half of the cases are associated with anaplastic lymphoma kinase gene rearrangement. Complete surgical resection is recommended, when feasible. We present a case of a 26-year-old woman admitted to our institution with severe respiratory failure; she was affected with primary IMT of the trachea and underwent complete surgical resection.
