Background: Inflammatory Myofibroblastic tumors (IMT) arising from the adrenal gland are extremely rare. Until now only 5 cases have been reported in literature.Case Report: 55 year old male under evaluation for fever, right upper abdominal pain and nonprogressive jaundice on abdominal CECT was found to have a large right suprarenal mass, high suspicion of adrenocortical carcinoma. He underwent adrenalectomy after hormonal evaluation. Final histopathology was Inflammatory Myofibroblastic tumor. A rare tumor composed of plump, spindle cells or myofibroblasts and histiocytoid cells arranged haphazardly and in fascicles, accompanied by prominent chronic inflammatory infiltrate, particularly plasma cells.Conclusion: IMT of the adrenal are rare. Radiologically and clinically they mimic a malignant process and must be considered in the differential of radiologically suspicious adrenal masses. Complete surgical resection is mandatory as malignancy cannot be excluded preoperatively.
