Pathology of Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Bladder Tumor

Definition

Most benign spindle cell tumors of the urinary bladder are an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT).
 Although the urinary bladder and rarely, the ureter, are affected, this lesion has been described in numerous other locations.
 Postoperative spindle cell nodule (PSCN) is usually described as histologically identical to IMT, except that a history of instrumentation or trauma to the bladder can be elicited, and plasma cells are often less prominent.

Most cases of IMT of the bladder are idiopathic, but in some cases, there is a history of inflammation or irritation of the bladder.
