Torqued pedunculated inflammatory myofibroblastic tumour of the greater omentum (GO-IMT) presenting as gynaecological emergency in an adolescent girl: case report and representative literature review
1.1. Background and Objectives: Material and methods: A rare
case of a torsion of pedunculated Inflammatory Myofibroblastic
Tumor (IMT) from the Greater Omentum (GO) in an adolescent
girl, mimicking torsion of pedunculated leiomyoma is presented.
IMT is a rare pathology, with pelvic location and torsion of pe-
dunculated IMT from the GO being extremely rare. Surgery is the
treatment of choice. However, the treatment was severely delayed
in our patient due to signs of infection, unrecognized pathology
and multiple transfers among departments. To our knowledge, this
is the first case reported of a torsion of pedunculated GO-IMT, lo-
cated in the pelvis and representing as gynaecological emergency.
