Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors are rare pseudosarcomatous tumors found in virtually all anatomic sites. Our case report describes an elderly female patient with an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor in the proximal jejunum, accidentally discovered at laparotomy for an acute abdomen. The localization in the jejunum is a very rare finding, and perforation has not been described before.
