Case report of an orbital inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor in a dog
Fan, Elaine C.
The inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) has been only fairly recently identified and studied in human medicine. It is commonly found as a primary lung tumor, and most often affects children and young adults. It is usually benign, with a low rate of recurrence and low metatstatic potential. However, diagnosis of this neoplasm is often confusing and controversial, making the potential for misdiagnosis high. The IMT is virtually unheard of in veterinary medicine. Thus, it is with great excitement that we present a case report of an orbital inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor in a dog with the hope of bringing the IMT into the consciousness of mainstream veterinary medicine.
