Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumours (IMTs) have been described in lung, bladder, spleen, breast, pancreas, liver, colon, spermatic cord, prostate, peripheral nerves, orbit and kidney. Traditionally believed as having a reactive pathogenesis, IMTs are now viewed more as a neoplasm. This report describes a case of a renal IMT in a 14-year-old girl with spina bifida associated neurogenic bladder and a history of recurrent urinary tract infections. This represents a unique case as pediatric renal IMTs are very rare in the literature. We discuss how this patient was managed and how she presented compared to other reported cases.
