Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour (inflammatory pseudotumor) is an idiopathic lesion, rare in the head and neck, of unknown aetiology. It is primarily a soft tissue, lung and orbital condition. In the world literature, only two cases with tonsillar disease have been found. We report a case of a 10-year-old girl admitted to our hospital with clinical complaints of pain in the neck region, cough with vomiting, dyspnoea and dyslexia. Clinical examination revealed halitosis and a neoformation dependent on the left tonsil. Bilateral tonsillectomy was performed.
