    INFLAMATORNI MIOFIBROBLASTIČNI TUMOR LARINKSA: PRIKAZ SLUČAJA ----- Inflamatorni miofibroblastični tumor (IMT) je pseudosarkomatozna lezija mekih tkiva i solidnih organa. Poznat je pod brojnim nazivima kao što su inflamatorni pseudotumor, plazmastanični granulom ili pseudosarkomatozna miofibroblastična proliferacija. IMT se najčešće nalazi u plućima, a izuzetno je rijedak u larinksu. Zbog svog biološkog ponašanja može se pogrešno dijagnosticirati kao maligni tumor. Predstavljamo slučaj IMT larinksa, koji je na vrijeme prepoznat i liječen laserskom ablacijom. Ovaj slučaj pokazuje važnost prepoznavanja IMT kako bi se izbjeglo nepotrebno, agresivno liječenje, ali i nužnost praćenja ovakvih pacijenata.

    English abstract

    Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a pseudosarcomatous lesion occurring in soft tissue and organs. It is known under a wide number of terms, such as inflammatory pseudotumor, plasma cell granuloma, pseudosarcomatous myofibroblastic proliferation. IMT is most commonly located in the lung, while laryngeal location is rarely described. Due to its biology it can be misdiagnosed as a malignant tumor. We present a case of IMT of larynx, recognized in time and treated with laser ablation. Our case demonstrates the importance of timely IMT recognition in order to avoid overtreatment. This diagnosis should also alert clinicians to close follow-up of these patients.
