  Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is an immunohistochemically diverse condition with neoplastic and non-neoplastic characteristics. It is an uncommon tumor that can occur anywhere in the body. Most cases occur in the lung and abdomen and present benign behavior. When located in the nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, and pterygopalatine fossa, it has increased neoplastic and invasive potential. IMT in the head and neck region is very rare, with few cases described in the literature.

   The current case involves a 66-year-old patient with an IMT presenting aggressive behavior in the right maxillary sinus.
