ABSTRACT OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate retrospectively the CT and sonographic features in nine children with pathologically proven inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors of the abdomen. CONCLUSION: Although inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors occur in various sites and the imaging characteristics are variable, tumors showed different imaging patterns that were dependent on the site at which the tumor had originated.
