The inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor is a rare condition, and its' relevant for being a differential diagnosis of many other neoplasms. It has been related with different infections, traumas, previous surgeries and immune deficiencies, but there are studies that support the theory that these factors are only the initial event of an autoimmune reaction that perpetuates the disease. It affects childs and young adults, with an average of 10 years old at the moment of presentation, without differences between genre. In this case, we reporta 45 year old woman, with an histological diagnosis of inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor related to the internal carotid artery, extirpated after an arterial selective embolization. Besides, we review the literature.
