Although inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMTs) can be found in virtually every major organ, cardiac origin is rare. After recently providing care to a child who presented with a significant myocardial infarction, interest in this rare tumor was piqued. We describe a comprehensive review of cardiac IMT, including information on nomenclature, epidemiology, clinical features, pathogenesis, gross/histological features, immunohistochemical profile, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis. Fifty-seven cases were identified in the literature. Interestingly, our case represents the seventh case of coronary artery involvement reported. Moreover, it was found that an initial presentation of sudden death most commonly involves the coronary arteries.
