Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors (IMTs) are a rare soft tissue neoplasm, usually seen in children and adolescents, which are predominantly found in the pulmonary region. The extrapulmonary multicentric lesions are exceedingly rare. We herein report the case of a 19-year-old female who developed acute bowel obstruction which caused by multicentric IMTs. We described her clinical presentations, operative finding, and pathological finding.
