Abstract

Inflammatory pseudotumour describes as a wide range of neoplastic and reactive lesions. One of the rare presentations of these tumors is found in the salpinx. This case report characterizes a thirty six year old woman with a history of left sided abdominal pain for a few months. Further examinations revealed that she had a complex cyst in her left salpinx. The patient had normal levels of tumor markers such as CA125, Alfa Fetoprotein (AFP), and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), while other paraclinical test were in normal values Additionaly The patient underwent left salpingectomy by a gynecologist. The pathological diagnosis of the lesion was inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT). In immunohistochemistry the tumor stains was moderately positive in anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) and also actin positive. Total resection of tumor was performed with no complications and remained disease free during follow up for 40 months. Although Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumor (IMT) is benign in nature, but in order to improve the prognosis, this tumor requires low intensity surgical treatment.
