Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMTs) of the breast represent extremely rare lesions. Due to the scarcity of reports, their natural history, recurrence, and metastatic potential remain poorly defined. We report on a case of a primary breast IMT in a postmenopausal female patient treated successfully with breast conserving surgery and review the literature pertaining to this rare entity.
