Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (IMT) is a rare low-grade lesion in the spectrum of myofibroblastic tumours. Systemic IMT is a well-described entity, but orbital IMT is extremely uncommon. These tumours are detected incidentally or through site-specific complaints. Their presentation may clinically and radiologically mimic that of a malignant neoplasm, thus necessitating a biopsy. Even with reports of persistence, local recurrence and malignant transformation the overall prognosis remains favourable.
