Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a rare neoplasm, most commonly seen in children and adolescents. It can occur in nearly every part of the body. Imaging properties and the clinical presentation of IMT can mimic malignant process. A 41-year-old female presented with cough of 3 months duration. Chest X-ray showed a coin shadow in the right upper lobe. Positron emission tomography/computed tomography scan showed a 3.2 × 2.4 cm lesion with homogeneous appearance with a very high fluorodeoxyglucose uptake value, suggesting a neoplastic process. She underwent lobectomy and the final diagnosis was IMT.
